The Pantages Theater The legit Hollywood theater, currently home to the musical Wicked," began its life as a lavish movie palace in 1930. And one of its oldest ghosts has been in the theater since 1932 a female patron who died in the mezzanine during the screening of a musical. She can be heard singing when the theater is dark and during a live performance of a musical in 1994 her trilling was actually picked up by a microphone. Supposedly, she always wanted to be a singer. Howard Hughes, who bought the theater in 1949, supposedly haunts the second-floor offices. Among the other spirits who haunt the theater include Alexander Pantages, the man after whom the theater is named.
