The Dolby Theater, formerly known as the Kodak Theater, is a large auditorium in Hollywood that is well known for its star studded events, most notably the annual Academy Awards. These high-profile events gather huge crowds from all over the world, which only amplifies the traffic and parking problems already present in Hollywood.

Hollywood & Highland Center:
The Dolby Theater is located within the Hollywood & Highland Center, an enormous shopping center full of shops and restaurants. There is also a parking garage located right beneath the Hollywood & Highland Center that charges $1 for every 15 minutes. However, if you get your parking ticket validated at any of the shops or restaurants in the mall you can get 2 hours of parking for $2 or pay $4 for 4 hours. 24 hour parking is available for $13 and a flat rate of $10 is applied Thursday-Saturday after 10pm.
Pro Tip: Unfortunately, the Dolby Theater does not validate parking, so if you park underground at the Hollywood & Highland lot make sure to pop into any of the stores or restaurants in the shopping center to get your parking validated.
