The Orpheum Theater in Phoenix has movies. It is very different.

The outside is beige.

When we were here at Phoenix we had 5 choices:

Letter Kenny Live on Tour.

The Illuminists

Trixie Martel.

It was built to play silent films with theMighty Wurliziter.

This place is the style as the Spanish architecture.

Have fun!

The details are spectacular and the acoustic amazing! Definitely worth the drive as we live in the West Valley. Seats were comfortable and thought it shouldn't matter the show was amazing!

We went to a musical presentation and also took a tour of the theater, which has a fascinating history and many interesting features. It has a really great theater organ from the old days of silent movies which sounds wonderful but is hardly every played. I wish we could hear a concert on it. But the theater is a nice venue for many kinds of programs, and i look forward to visiting there again.

a few days ago we saw Shen Yun performance. Very impressive, amazing , educational experience in an artistic way. Both, the orchester, the instruments and dances just transported you to another world. Truly mesmerizing.

What a wonderful trip back in time to see a beautiful theater!
It has been refurbished and shows the love the city of Phoenix and the people have for this grand old place! The tour was about an hour and so very informative!

I've been here for a few events, I think this last event was enthralling. The Theater was built to play Silent Films, and I attended a Silent Sunday event.. accompanied by the Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ, played by Brett Valliant.
I'd liked Silent Films for some time, my wife, mmm not so much. But we saw "Sunrise - A Song of Two Humans" from William Fox. For both of us the experience was enthralling, the Organ cannot be appreciated outside the theater. It absorbs you and brings you into the world presented in the film.
It's been sometime sense the world disappeared and I was pulled into an experience.
Back in the day, the Orpheum Theaters, were built to be a destination which played movies and hosted events. Each cities movie palace reflected a trait of the city in which it was built. (I remember coming here when I was in grade school). The building went through a couple of other incarnations, but was restored by the city of Phoenix. Thankfully it was not knocked down and lost.

Ours was a memorable experience. Our docent was extremely knowledgeable, and she ensured we were positioned (seated or standing) so that everyone could hear her (thank you!). Our docent started the tour with the history of the Theatre, which was outstanding. She interjected info that you won't find on the internet, e.g., info about the ghosts who live in the Theatre. Following the introduction, we completed a walking tour of the entire Theatre. We sat in the Theatre itself and learned about how productions are made. We enjoyed hearing the organ which resonates sound for each production from both sides of the Theatre. We saw the 'practice' room where a few of the tour guests had a opportunity to experience the room's acoustics (if you are part of a small tour group, you may get this opportunity). We learned fascinating details about the Theatre and got a personal look at the largest women's restroom you will ever see (sure, that sounds weird to comment on until you watch 40+ people having no problem whatsoever walking around in it at the same time). We visited the 'green' room and learned why backstage rooms are called green rooms. We also had the opportunity to walk through the performers' dressing room areas and learn about their features. This tour provides such interesting information that you'll be able to add even more than I did when you write your own five-star review!

Many concerts are held in the gorgeous theatre, with architecture that is historic and lovely. My experiences have been for classical music or ballet performances. The theatre is memorable and the sound level is magnificent!!!
