“Beautiful heritage building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

The Orpheum is one of Vancouver's best preserved heritage sites on the inside, currently home to the Vancouver Symphony. Beautiful immense crystal chandeliers decorate the foyer areas as well as the concert hall. The acoustics in the hall are excellent and all seats offer clear views to the stage, so no matter what type of musical performance you're attending you'll definitely enjoy it.

“Jann Arden!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Beautiful Theatre that houses a lot of different types of music and production. A little fancier than sitting in stadium seats for a concert and situated in the heart of downtown Vancouver.

“Rivals Carnegie Hall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

From an inconspicuous exterior, the interior looks absolutely grand and it`s home to the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra that is simply outstanding.

“great sound for any show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

I've seen a few different styles of concert here over the years and this is probably the best place, sound wise, for a show in vancouver. It is small and intimate enough but you get huge sound and quality.

“Excellent for symphony”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

A beautifully restored theatre with great accoustics. Not for concerts where you want to have a drink at your seat (not allowed) or where you want to move around a bit.
