Theater goers flock to the Orpheum every time the doors open. It offers the very best Broadway shows, movies, musicals, and specialty acts fro around the world. My granddaughter loves sing alongs especially Mama Mia. Dress up if you like, the atmosphere is nostalgic, complimentary to formal attire, and the theater is beautifully maintained with gold, curtains, box seats reminiscent... More

The Orpheum is an old theater but was comfortable for our show. We had seats in the balcony. It was easy in and easy out up there. I usually have cramped legs in a theater like this but that was not the issue here. The seats though are tight and you can't really sit comfortably by the stranger next to... More

This is the best way to finish the most perfect evening. We started off by eating dinner at Tuscany Italian Eatery just two blocks away. They make everything from scratch such a nice cute little place. Then we walked three minutes to the Orpheum and had the most amazing time. It is such a beautiful place inside in the staff... More

Here in Memphis for the first time in a couple of decades. The Orpheum is a gem on Beale St. (which you can have). We were here for a Bonnie Raitt concert & she was incredible. Great show, excellent acoustics and a generally amazing interior

The Orpheum is beautiful and makes you feel like you're somewhere back in time. I love the atmosphere and admiring all of the intricate details put into making this theatre special. It's Memphis' best gem, in my opinion.

We had seats in the balcony... I don't think there's a bad seat in the house. It was easy to get inside. Plenty of entrances/security checkpoints so lines were minimal. Lobby was very nice. Restrooms were small with long line for women's. Decent refreshment choices for the venue type. Went upstairs to find our seats and ushers, ushers, everywhere ushers.... More
