Opened in 1930 by Alexander Pantages as part of the Fox Theatre chain, it was the largest movie palace in Hollywood and the first Art Deco Theater in the United States. With a construction cost of $1.25 million, it has operated as a movie house with live vaudeville acts between features as well as hosting gala premieres and “spectaculars.” The Pantages Theatre was the home of the Academy Awards Presentations from 1949 to 1959. Today it operates as one of LA’s leading venues for touring musicals.
