The basics

Located in the Hollywood & Highland shopping and entertainment center, the Dolby Theatre is in the heart of the Hollywood action, making it easy to visit during a day of sightseeing. Purchase your ticket online for the 30-minute Dolby Theatre tour to ensure your admission to the popular sight, or opt for a walking tour to see it among other Hollywood attractions with a guide. If you're short on time, many Los Angelessightseeing tours drive by the theater.

During the theater tour, you can see a real Oscar statuette and 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 tour guide tells you stories about the A-list events that have taken place here.
