  • Where Oscar happens since 2001, the tour is included in the GO LA card, has every 30min and the last leaves at 16h. You can't shoot, just take pictures. The guide shows all the theater and explains how everything works inside. We climb up on stage! Truly a unique experience!

  • This is also one of the famous attractions on the Walk of Fame, interested in buying tickets to visit. Tickets are about 151 yuan a ticket. The annual Oscars are held here and can accommodate 3,400 guests and 1,500 journalists. It's the biggest stage in America, not only for the Oscars, but also for the world-famous Vimy Show. Opening hours: Monday to Saturday 10:00-17:00. Sunday 10am-16:00 $19a for adults and $15 for over 65s or under 17s. Free for under 3 years old. I wasn't very interested in it, so I looked at it at the door and left, and I felt that there weren't many tourists going on. It's just that the logo of the Dolby Theatre, which can be seen at the beginning or end of many movies, is familiar.

  • The tour is only about 30 minutes and is really an empty theater....but...the one for the Oscars. You see where the red carpet will be, then into the main theater, sit in the seats, go on stage, and follow the route that winners go to meet the press after their win.If you love movies and watch the Oscars...this is great. Otherwise, it is just a very large, well designed theater.
  • Kind of amazed inside of a maze at this giant outdoor mall complex, but the theater itself is fantastic. Be forewarned that the upper levels are very steep, so if you are scared of heights this may not be the best section for you. The acoustics are very good, as you might expect for a theater name Dolby and it's a beautiful place overall. The concession stands and bars are well-stocked and staffed.
