This summer, Vancouver Civic Theatres (VCT) in partnership with the Downtown Vancouver BIA and the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame, is hosting FREE guided tours of the Orpheum theatre, one of the most beautiful concert halls in North America.
The Orpheum, a designated National Heritage Site, was built in 1927. Each year the theatre hosts international musicians, popular concerts, and unique events; it is also home to the beloved Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
The 90-minute walking tours are hosted by the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame and reveal some secrets of the theatre's history. One story includes Frank Sinatra almost being kicked out of the theatre for breaking dressing room lights while he practiced his golf swing!
*Please meet guides at the Granville Street entrance.
