The historic Orpheum Theater is a historic and visual delight.I always spring for the best seats I can afford. Wear comfortable shoes for walking from your parking place. We like to eat beforehand somewhere in walking distance of the Orpheum. If the weather is nice it is fun to explore/walk downtown Memphis before or after the event.

I've been here a thousand times through my life. Every time was just as spectacular as the time before. The decor is always kept in pristine condition and the staff is always helpful and friendly. The restrooms are always well-kept and the shows are always phenomenal. one hell of a place to see a show.

The Orpheum is beautiful, and it reminds me of the theaters on Broadway in New York City. I've seen Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera through their Student Rush program (first come, first serve tickets for $25 with a valid student ID). The shows are superb and there's hardly a bad seat in the house.

This beautiful, historic theater was the perfect setting for this concert. The staff was wonderful and helpful. I cannot wait to return. It was as beautiful as any Broadway Theatre I have been in.

The theater was beautiful inside, large and ornately decorated in gold and red. Don't know how old the theater is, but was a grand old theater in its day.

What a beautiful venue; intimate, comfortable, not a bad seat in the house. The acoustics are great and we had such an amazing time, it doesn't hurt that Santana is truly one of the greatest artists of our time...........

The Orpheum is a seemingly small, intimate venue, but in fact it seats almost 2500 people. It retains it original beauty as an historic venue and is very well maintained, well staffed and in excellent condition. Whether for a concert, play or other theatre event it is certainly one of the best, if the not the best, venue in Memphis.... More
