I've been to the Phoenix Zoo several times in the last couple of years but had never had the experience of visiting during Zoo Lights! Wow! The light show was amazing on its own but the fact that majority of them were shaped to resembled zoo animals really added a special touch. I will keep coming back every winter just... More

I Love this theater for its architecture, renovated to keep its classic feel and great location in central Phoenix. The seats are comfortable and great view of the small stage.

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.

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..
