“Vso”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

Vancouver symphony plays here. The theatre is lovely, but the acoustics are not great. Still, an enjoyable venue. So well priced.
A bargain even with the less than perfect acoustics.

It was sat waiting for us at the bar at the intermission, which we greatly enjoyed! The show was beautiful too and the theatre very grand!

“Love the Ceiling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

Been to several concerts here. Most recently in February. I am always in awe of the beautiful ceiling. The Orpheum has a classy feel to it. I am not an expert, but I believe the acoustics are phenomenal!

“whoopee doo..”

I don't see anything special about this place. So what about the history. Most of the history is insignificant. I seriously felt bored there.
