What a gorgeous place to see a concert. Little security when we walked in which I didn't like but other than that, its a wonderful place. Old school. Love the marquee outside. The acoustics are great. The Orpheum Club for drinks is super fun, open...More

Prime example why downtown Los Angeles is rapidly becoming a very "in spot" to visit for dining and entertainment.

Friends recently took us to a movie premier at the Orpheum and it was a great experience. I have rarely been downtown but the theater is beautiful and it is a decent area with activity around it.

This is a very classy, lavish, nostalgic, intimate, well-maintained, old theatre. It first opened in 1926. It is primarily used for movie premieres, live concerts/events, and location shoots. The sound quality is amazing. The ceiling, walls, and hanging chandeliers have a rich, opulent look. The...More

Cool stop to watch a stage show. My friends & I watched a live stage show : Set It Off. Set It Off Was super funny. The cast was amazing. Even though the theater reminded me of an old antique home.

The Orpheum Theater is stunning. It is totally redone to look like it did when it was built as a vaudeville house in the late 20's. Every detail is seen to, every piece of wood perfected, all of it beautiful. If you are ever in...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

They do, but if I were you I would leave super early and have some great food in Downtown LA. There is fine dinning, taco trucks, Mexican stands, whatever you could want is in Downtown LA. But their food and wine is fine.

Yes, there is an elevator. It is an old-fashioned attendant-operated elevator in keeping with this being a very old theater. The elevator is the size of a small kitchen! Service is good too. The elevator operator arrived... More
