Your Event at Orpheum

Orpheum auditorium from upper balcony


Grand, elegant and effortlessly dazzling, the Orpheum has entranced millions of people since opening in 1927.

The domed auditorium is adorned with a sprawling ceiling mural, and crowned by a giant crystal chandelier. The Orpheum's exquisite décor and sweeping staircases were designed in the rare Spanish Baroque Revival style and the magic and history of the space envelopes both audiences and performers.

The theatre's seats are arranged in curved arcs to ensure each patron benefits from an unobstructed view.
