Great show! Music was entertaining and the actors were very professional-there wasn't a moment during the play that you weren't being entertained!

The old Orpheum Theater is a great place to see a live performance. The building itself is attractive and interesting, and the acoustics are excellent. Bathrooms and old staircases are not from this century, and sometimes there are funky smells, but it is not a...More

I've seen several live theatre performances at this beautiful old theatre. The architecture is authentic and does justice to the 20's and 30's. Acoustics are very good. Seat comfort and facilities..... part of a past era. I've recently seen Hamilton, Lion King and Carol King...More

Bought Hamilton tickets for a gift. Tickets were not sent. Through a series of conversations, I came to learn that "Manager" Luke lied about when tickets were sent. They have no evidence of any kind that my tickets were sent, yet they hide behind a...More

We've been twice to the Orpheum which is a couple blocks from the SF City Hall. We have easily found paring even through the SF Opera in close by. The theatre is old classic with wall carvings and the central light is truly lovely. The...More

I had the pleasure of seeing Hamilton - perhaps the finest production ever created. The theater is designed so that everyone has a good view. Acoustics are excellent. If you need a last minute ticket, StubHub has a venue just a block down so you...More

We sat in the last row (center) and still had a decent view of the stage. The sound was fine. If you sit on the last row, ask the usher for padding for the seat to improve your view. Seats will seem small if you...More

This is the kind of place where going to the theatre itself is an event. It's so beautiful inside. The seats are comfortable. The views are great. Loved seeing Hamilton there.

Civic Center
Civic Center is the seat of power for all things
government and performance-related in the city.
Although its streets are best walked during daytime,
numerous cultural gems are within close proximity to
one another. The symphony, opera, ballet, and jazz
center offer year round entertainment within the
shadow of the city’s Beaux-Arts crown jewel: the gold
tipped dome of City Hall.

The theater was busy and crowded. We arrived 20 minutes ahead of time and got to our seats in the back row.
