Dolby Theatre Tours

6 reviews
Renamed in 2012 when sponsor Eastman Kodak filed for bankruptcy, this 180,000-square-foot, 3,400-seat theater now showcases Dolby Laboratories' state-of-the-art sound technologies. Situated in the popular Hollywood & Highland mall complex, the elegant Dolby Theatre hosts both the Academy Awards and Cirque du Soleil's Iris, a resident stage show which celebrates the history of film.

Periodically, the Dolby also plays host to charity benefits, movie premieres, special events and other televised award shows. The theater's soaring stage, one of the largest in the United States, has featured the national premiere of Pixar's Brave, the American Idol finals, the Daytime Emmys, the American Ballet Theatre and even President Barack Obama, while out on the campaign trail.

Practical Info

Guided walking tours of the theater's architectural and historical highlights (including a five-level lobby with geometric patterns inspired by the kaleidoscopic dance numbers in Busby Berkeley musicals) are offered seven days a week, departing every 30 minutes between 10:30am and 2:30pm.
