Fodor's Review

The interior design of the theater that hosts the Academy Awards was inspired by European opera houses, but underneath all the trimmings the space has one of the finest technical systems in the world. A tour of the Dolby, which debuted in 2001 as the Kodak Theatre, is a worthwhile expense for movie buffs who just can't get enough insider information. Tour guides share plenty of behind-the-scenes tidbits about Oscar ceremonies as they escort you through the theater. You'll get to step into the VIP lounge where celebrities mingle on the big night and get a bird's-eye view from the balcony seating. If you have the Go Los Angeles Card, the tour is included.
