Vacation Travel Guide

Dolby Theater which includes street scenes and signage

Tour the backstage sections of the gorgeous venue at the heart of the Oscars. A red carpet awaits your arrival.

As the famous host of the Academy Awards, the Dolby Theatre is a prestigious auditorium at the center of Hollywood entertainment. Part of the Hollywood and Highland Center shopping mall, the majestic theater is one of the most exclusive places in the world to watch movie premieres and live performances. During your visit to the Dolby Theatre go on a guided tour of the site to see backstage at the venue and learn about what really goes on at the iconic Academy Awards ceremonies.

Listen to your docent tell stories about the awards and the celebrities who have graced this hall. See an Oscar statuette and imagine holding it on stage as you give a speech as a winner. On the tour, you’ll visit the majestic Dolby Lounge and find out where the biggest stars tend to hang out. Check out the best photos from the previous awards ceremonies and recall the biggest winners.

Admire the stylish design of the building, which resembles a European opera house. It was inaugurated in 2001 and has a capacity of 3,400 spectators. Follow in the footsteps of the world’s greatest actors by climbing up the stairs and strolling along the red carpet. Access the boxes and consider the brilliant views of the stage and the orchestra pit. Other televised shows, including American Idol, are often filmed here.

Purchase tickets for performances at the box office, which opens daily from morning until late afternoon. Choose from all types of events, from ballet and opera to circus acts and pop music. Many restaurants and shops line the adjacent Hollywood and Highland mall.

The Dolby Theatre is on famous Hollywood Boulevard in the Hollywood Heights zone of northern Los Angeles. Travel by bus to one of the stops along the street.

Explore the surroundings for other neighboring treasures such as the Hollywood Wax Museum, the TCL Chinese Theatre and Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!
