Moma Mia was a GREAT girls night out!

The Orpheum is such a jewel! We don't go often, but I love it everytime I go! During this visit we sat on the first row of the balcony - great location!

I've been to the Orpheum many times. Concerts, movies, Broadway productions, comedians...a great stage, comfortable seating. Warning:it does get hot in the upper seats during the summer months.

The Summer Movie series is a big win for nostalgia! Back to the Future was a great way to spend my birthday!

My wife and I went to the Sound of Music sing-a-long last night, I was being a sport but not really looking forward to it. I was very surprised at how much fun the evening was, the crowd was really into it, singing the songs, hissing at the villains and cheering for the heroes. It was fun, the Orpheum as... More

This is a beautiful theatre in downtown Memphis. There are lots of restaurants nearby. This is a beautifully restored theatre and it fun to see a broadway show or a classic movie during the summer.

The theatre alone is a site to see- gorgeous!! Motown the musical was amazing! We took a ghost tour later in the week and learned even more about the history and legends of the Orpheum theatre.

Since this theater is a working one we didn't go into it but saw it from the outside. It is close to the Elvis statue.

The Opheum Theater is one of the few "Grand" movie houses of yesteryear that still exists today. It has been completely restored back to it's origonal beauty and will literally take your breath away to go inside and look up at the cieling's gourgous detail.

The building is very beautiful and well maintained. The only downfall is because of the building's age, it lacks modern comfort and convenience. Seats are close together, not leaving much legroom. The seats are also in need of refinishing. Love watching shows there, but always leave with a sore back and behind. Another issue is the lack of restrooms. Lines... More

The Orpheum is a great venue for live performances, music, musicals, plays, movies. Parking is close and the fee is small. There are many restaurants and bars nearby to visit before or after the show.
