With its location at the Hollywood & Highland shopping and entertainment center, the Dolby Theatre is in the heart of the Hollywood action and easy to visit during a day of sightseeing. Purchase your ticket online for the 30-minute theater tour to ensure your admission to the popular site, or opt for a walking tour to see it among other Hollywood attractions with a guide. If you’re short on time, many Los Angeles sightseeing tours include a drive-by of the theater.
During the theater tour, you can see a real Oscar statuette, visit the lounge and other places where movie stars have stepped foot, and even stand on the stage if there is nothing going on that day. Along the way, a guide tells you stories about the A-list events that have taken place here.
Things to know before you go
- The Dolby Theatre is a must for movie buffs and pop culture enthusiasts.
- The theater walking tour includes several flights of stairs.
- Those with disabilities can be accommodated if you advise the theater when you purchase your ticket.
How to get there
The Dolby Theatre is located on Hollywood Boulevard at the northwest corner of Highland Avenue. Via public transport, you can get there on the Metro Red Line, which stops at Hollywood & Highland. Tours start from the Level 2 entrance.
When to get there
Theater tours generally take place from late morning to late afternoon, depending on the theater’s events on any given day. There are no tours in the weeks leading up to the Oscars, as well as several other periods during the year. To visit the theater for a show or other performance, check the schedule on the theater website.
A couple doors down from the Dolby Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard is a much older Hollywood landmark—the TCL Chinese Theatre, formerly known as Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. Opened in 1927, the theater has hosted movie premieres and past Academy Awards and is now home to an IMAX theater.
