New Delhi, India

when i used to live nearby, i came here a lot for gigs. award shows are also hosted here. for gigs, the venue is quite bare with just a stage and little to no seating options if you need a rest. it can become quite a hot sweat box which is sometimes just what you want. at times they'll open the back door so you can get some fresh air.

I was there for a Cantonese stand up talk show! Great deco inside, 3 stairs! Seats are narrow, even for smaller ppl. Event parking $20, I choose to park 2 blocks away street parking. Great service, they even arrange staff in women restroom to make sure the line goes smoothly.

A Los Angeles landmark. The Oscars have been held here in the past and it is going through a revival as a concert hall. Inside, you feel like you are going back in time to a golden era of Los Angeles. Just keep in mind that there is limited on sight parking, so get to your event early!

Apparently they won't knock this place down because it's a historical landmark...

This theater is so outdated, the sound system is terrible (the bass and treble are way too sharp), it's dirty (they use tape to separate the stairs steps), and parking is atrocious ($15 and if you're parked on the top... good luck getting out).

Sure, the stage and the chandelier are really nice. However, the chairs are kind of uncomfortable compared to newer venues (I rather sit in the nose bleed sections of baseball games) and the staff here have no clue where your seats are located....

Overall, unless you really have to go to this venue, just skip it.

I've come here on many different occasions - a USC graduation, a talent competition concert and an EDM concert. Each time has been a wonderful experience. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful. There are ample parking options adjacent to the building.

At various time the Shrine Auditorium has been the site for the Oscars, the Emmys and the Grammys. It is also where Michael Jackson's hair caught on fire during the filming of a Pepsi commercial in 1984. The scene in the original King Kong movie, when King Kong breaks loose from his chains after being exhibited before hordes of flash-popping photographers while on a New York theater stage, was actually shot at the Shrine. Since its 2002 renovation, which among other significant improvements added air conditioning, the Shrine is a much pleasanter place to enjoy a performance.

Entering the Shrine parking lot can be confusing. It is on 32nd Street.

You probably wouldn't come here unless you were heading to a University of Southern California game or an event at the Shrine. Cool building....but not much else to see. 2.5 out of 5 stars.
