With its golden facade and striking red carpet, it's no surprise that the Dolby Theatre has become home for the annual Academy Awards. Each year celebrities and artists, dressed in their very best, grace the foyer of this extravagant venue. When it isn't hosting the Oscars, the Dolby Theatre is made available for live concerts, performances and other entertainment events.
The theater was built in 2001, with the Academy Awards in mind, and based on the designs of David Rockwell. Hues of red and gold give the large auditorium a feeling of Old Hollywood glamour. Its intricate lighting design and numerous set capabilities make the Dolby Theatre a stage director's dream. Anything is possible in this luxurious setting.
