the place was built in 1929 and totally restored about ten years ago. good acoustics and a great place to see a play
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.
This theater was saved as an historic landmark, and once inside it is obvious why. The inside of the theater is painted to resemble the outdoors complete with stars in the night sky. I don't know that there are a lot of regular performances in the theater so visitors would have to check on that. I have performed in the... More
Visited the Orpheum for a presentation by the Theatre Organ Society which was so interesting. They have this incredible organ that is a pipe organ used during the 20's in the theatre when they showed silent movies. Also did a backstage tour. The theatre is beautiful and represents baroque, roman as well as art deco features.
We went to see a production of The West Side Story, which in and of itself was incredible, but the beauty of this property would have been worth the price of admission just to see it. It is a must see while in Phoenix. Located in downtown Phoenix it was easy to find, has a parking garage right next door... More
A hidden and little know gem in downtown Phoenix! This theater is beautiful and as you enter you immediately step back in time. The history of being built in the 20s, bought in the 60s, in disrepair until bought by the City in the 80s/90s...it's fantastic. Yes it is old, yes the seats are old, but that is the charm... More
We went here to see their version of Scrooge and were quite pleased. The building is a restoration of a very old theater and was done perfectly. Close to the stage, no bad seats and great acoustics. We've been here before and always have a good time,
The Orpheum Theatre was originally used for vaudeville. It can seat 1364 people. It has great accommodations for wheelchairs? The Orpheum was purchased by the City of Phoenix after there was the threat of tearing down this stately building. After 12 years, $14 million and an incredible amount of perseverance, the historic Orpheum Theatre has been renovated for 'adaptive reuse'.... More
Docents take you back in time to 1929 when the theatre opened with Carol Channing and Hello Dolly. The theatre is amazing to look at from the oval ceiling which changes from bright blue to a starry night sky and to hear the organ bellowing out a tune and the backstage tour of the star's rooms and stage. A must... More
This is a beautiful theater. You will love just walking around. It's also a small venue which will remind you of Broadway theaters. No matter where you sit, you will have a wonderful experience. We sat 5 rows in from the back and had a great view of all the actors.
