While we haven't made the Pantages a regular spot to frequent for cultural activities (concerts, presentations, etc.), it is convenient to where we live in University Place and offers a much better commute than the trek we normally take to Seattle's 5th Ave or the...More

No matter the entertainment, the acoustics, “viewability” and the beautiful, historic setting makes this one of the best places to relax and be entertained.

Constructed beginning 1918 by Alexander Pantages, with assistance from Klondike Kate. Was designed to mimic the palace at Versailles. If there's a class act coming to Tacoma, it will be here. Lovely vintage Theatre is part of the Broadway Center for Performing Arts.

The Pantages is a beautiful venue. I've been there twice this year. Once as a competitor in a bodybuilding show and once as a spectator. The view stage was decent from any angle. The chairs were relatively comfortable but a bit close together. There is...More

Love this venue. It is like stepping back in time. To a time when the theater was an experience. The staff is delightful, and every care is taken to make sure that you have an exceptional experience.

Bad news: incredibly uncomfortable seating. Good news: the seating is going to be improved soon. One huge problem is the rows go about 20 seats across with no gap to get through... this is going to be fixed and a center aisle installed. However, until...More

I booked late so had seats in the first balcony. The seating is extremely slanted so the seat back in front of yours only come to your ankles. Great for viewing but unnerving when walking to your seat. You are looking straight down into the...More

The restored Pantages is a gem; the nicest of our South Sound vintage theaters. Acoustics are fine, seating is logical and the terra cotta still impresses. Reputed to be haunted by 1 or 2 friendly spirits.
