“Iconic Building”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

The sound is so clear, the building is lovely. I've seen everything from BlueRodeo to the Vancouver Symphony here and have always enjoyed this venue.

“Let's Go Downtown - A Theatre Gem in the Heart of Vancouver!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

I absolutely love the old charm character of the Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver. It's situated on the Granville strip, right in the heart of downtown's entertainment district. The Granville stroll hosts many shops, restaurants, and entertainment spots, which include some of the city's finest lounges, bars, and nightclubs.

Recently, we had the pleasure of seeing Blue Rodeo perform at the Orpheum. As always, the theatre acoustics and overall ambiance at this location, without a doubt phenomenal! You will not be disappointed visiting any entertainment venue at this quaint gem!

“The New Years Salute To Vienna was great.”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

2013 New Years Salute To Vienna show was great. Entertaining and fun. Definite a must to attend. The conductor, tenor, and soprano were very entertaining.

“Best Venue in Vancouver”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

The atmosphere, like a church of sound.... awesome! The decor is very nice, several bar throughout the venue. The sound quality at live performances is very good and the seating comfortable. Security at rock shows is very hospitable and my several experiences have all been wonderful.

“Tribute to Vienna: 18th year for New Year's Day Performance”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Visiting Vancouver for four days including New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. We decided to do something really different and bought tickets ($75 each) for the Tribute to Vienna at the lovely Orpheum Theater. A first rate venue for live performances. Several nice restaurants are within walking distance including the lovely Fairmont Vancouver Hotel.
