Our students attended the School House Rock performance. It did not disappoint, but I would really like to compliment the Orpheum staff and their excellent management of student groups. From parking, to seating, exiting the theater, they are well staffed, and always have a plan that ensures safety, yet quick transitions. The architecture alone is an incredible experience for students.

This is a beautiful theatre and it has been kept beautiful for many years. The gold leaf on the ceiling, the grand staircase, the chandeliers ... awesome! Great place for concerts and Broadway shows!

Caught a matinee of Phantom of the Opera. Our balcony seats provided incredible views. The theater, lobby, and every part of this building was magnificent. Loved it.

Have been here a couple times now, to see the Nutcracker by the Memphis Ballet (who are amazing) to see Book of Mormon, and Jaws during the summer movie series. It is such a pretty theater, I just love staring at the ceiling. Never had a bad seat, the acoustics are great. The staff have always been friendly. If you... More

We saw "So You Think You Can Dance" tour here and it was great. This theater has character. Easy to enter and exit but the seats are a tad small. Staff was ready for business and did a good job.

It was a great place although not very comfy. The show was a huge disappointment. We saw SYTYCD and just felt it was not energetic enough. But who can blame them? They work so hard. But I would return to the Orpheum.

We have attended many concerts, plays, events at The Orpheum and have never been disappointed. Parking lots are convenient (for a fee). The building is very ornate inside.

I visited this location for a concert. Very nice setup and where ever you sit is a good seat. The ushers was very helpful in assisting you with your seats. The alcoholic beverages were good and reasonable in price.

Nice cozy theater. Good choice of presentations through out the year. Most seats are very close to stage, so it is difficult to have a bad one.
