Beautiful, historical, ornate inside, nothing like it. Always great performances. I love the louge seats or orchestra, but nothing really bad.

The orpheum is always brining in a great choice of plays, shows, and concerts. Has a classic feel of an opera house.

We've gone to many performances at the Orpheum and every show has been enjoyable and almost every seat affords a decent, if not always close, view of the performance. The ushers have always been friendly and helpful, in my experience. There is a parking garage...More

My husband is dropping off myself and our daughter for Elmo. Is there anyplace we could park to unload her from carseat that would be nearby?

There is no parking in front of the Orpheum Theatre on 16th street, so you can be dropped off there. The doors open one hour before the show so you can wait inside the lobby for your husband to park the car.
