It's an honor to simply sit in the Orpheum Theater, much less enjoy an event in this stunning venue. If you haven't visited the theater, do. You will be impressed; it's unlike any venue in metropolitan Phoenix. Docents offer regular tours, so attending a concert or play isn't a requirement.

Nice size theatre, there isn't really a bad seat in the house. Very charming. Close access to parking and restaurants. They always have great shows.

I am easy to please but I am picky in certain areas. I have attended The Orpheum Theater on many occasions & have enjoyed the surroundings, looks and feel of it..

The design makes it seem that you are outdoors surrounded by a European neighborhood - at least that is how I envision it. We attended the Phoenix Children's Choir performance. The acoustics were verey good and the seats were comfortable.

Very beautiful Art Deco venue. We always enjoy the performances there, as the theater is not huge, and the acoustics are good.

For anyone who appreciates art deco and the era of the great movie theaters, this one is not to be missed. I take every opportunity, as a local, to attend performances in this venue, be they opera or ballet..

Was there for a graduation in June. Beautiful theater! The space is not the largest, but if you have a small graduation, then it is perfect!

From an age when Phoenix was literally rising in the desert in the 1920s, the Orpheum theater was and still is a community focal point. The interior lobby speaks of a time before television when entertainment was a special occasion. We live in the nearby Historical District and frequent this venue in much the same way as the first occupants... More

Great theater. So glad they have preserved and maintained it. It is beautiful. The acoustics are great and I have always enjoyed every musical or theatrical production I have seen there. It is on the bus line and easily accessible by a short walk from the train.
