Description

LA Weekly's Description

This "crown jewel" of the Hollywood & Highland complex is best known as the home of the Academy Awards, but the 3,332-seat theater is also the site of many other awards shows, pop concerts, theatrical productions and dance events. Prince, the Dixie Chicks, Barry Manilow, Alicia Keys, John Fogerty and Stevie Wonder are among the musicians who've played at the Hollywood Boulevard theater. Designed by the Rockwell Group and opened in 2001, the lavish theater features a five-level lobby, a spiral staircase and dome. Originally known as Kodak Theatre, the place was renamed Dolby Theatre in 2012.

    This mega movie theater is intricately designed with gorgeous Chinese decor. Go out and see the movie you've been waiting for or stand on the sidelines of a red carpet premiere.
