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.

I took my wife to the Orpheum in Phoenix for Valentines Day. The last time she was there was about 20 years ago after the renovation. I had never been. We attended an evening performance of Shen Yun Performing Arts. This is a company of world-class dancers and musicians performing traditional Chinese cultural dances. The theater is amazing. It was... More

We attended a lovely Chinese dance performance today at the Orpheum and enjoyed it but thought the seats were uncomfortable. We sat in orchestra and for what we paid would have preferred a more comfortable seat.

If you want a gorgeous fully-restored theater to see your play, classical or contemporary, this place is your venue. My company took us to a play here for the Christmas party back in 2011, and it was absolutely stunning. The decorations on the walls reeked of history, and the pictures of the stars that have visited showed the length of... More

We attended a recent live broadcast of the Tonight show with Jimmy Fallon. I had never been to the Orpheum Theatre. What a beautiful place. Very nice! I will be looking for more shows, theatre shows that will be held at the beautiful Orpheum.
