The Friends of the theater gave 26 of us a private tour of the theater on May 14, 2015. Only 2 of us had been in the theater before but prior to the restoration and we were all amazed at the beauty and architecture of the building. Fey and Linda, our docents met us at the door and took all... More

My partner brought me to the Orpheum for a Phoenix Symphony concert. The theater is an historic landmark and when we walked in, we saw why. The lobby is comfortable, and when you walk into the auditorium, it is painted to resemble the outdoors even with stars in the sky. The acoustics are awesome and the sound is great regardless...

We went on the free 1 hour tour conducted by docents from the Friends of the Orpheum. The tour started on the lower floor and the docent gave an overview of the past (close to a hundred years), from the original plans by the founders, to the building construction, its glory days, decline and fall, and then rising again due...

Orpheum Theater is an old theater located in downtown Phoenix that has been beautifully restored to its original grandeur, and features legitimate stage shows as well as concerts and special shows - worth visiting just to see the theater itself, which is truly marvelous - highly recommended.

This theater was perserved as an historic landmark, and once you visit the Orpheum it becomes obvious why. The inside of the Orpheum theater is painted to resemble the outdoors complete with stars in the night sky. The Orpheum has this incredible pipe organ that was used during the 1920's when the Orpheum presented silent movies. The theatre is beautiful... More

This is a wonderful venue for the various concerts scheduled during the year. The theater has been brought back to it's glory days from the early 1900's. The size makes the theater small and intimate. Accoustically you can't get a bad seta.

I'm so glad this one was saved from the wrecking ball... it's so ornate and so beautiful, one feels like they have left Phoenix, no theatre this ornate and beautiful could be in Phoenix. And yet, it is, and Phoenix is very lucky to have it still. From the starry night to the creatures lurking in the stonework, it's a... More

Theyhave all sorts of events in the theater. They have ushers to assist for some of the events, but the building is just beatifully decorated in the old and ornate way they used to do once upon a time.
