The theatre is beautiful, but seating is very tight. One must get up and out to aisle in order to let others be seated past you. The Orpheum was easy to get to, coming from Mall... read more

Have broadway across America tickets for Saturday matinees five times yearly. Love the theater. Excellent ushers. Newly remodeled. Seats don't leave one much leg room. Easy access into theater from parking ramp. Skyway access so don't have to walk outside in cold or wet weather. Great Saturday activity!

I beautifully restored 1920's theatre!!! I saw Leon Bridges there and I can't begin to describe the wonderful sound and the majesty of the restored theatre, right down to the glimmering 2000 pound chandelier!! Go, even just to look at it!!! :)

Loved the sound, atmosphere and the fact that it's vintage. Clean place all around and service impeccable. Great seats all over and had a fabulous night. Loved this place.

Quick entry with a security wand. Saw people with large purses, so that is not an issue. They had snacks, concert swag, and drinks (adult beverages or not) that you can bring into the concert area. Check out the ceilings - SO beautiful! The rows in the middle are long. If you are a person who likes to come and... More

The theatre is beautiful, but seating is very tight. One must get up and out to aisle in order to let others be seated past you. The Orpheum was easy to get to, coming from Mall of America area. Parking was easy, as we parked in outdoor lot down the street. You pay at kiosk before you leave the lot.... More

We just saw a touring production of The Lion King here - it was excellent. The Orpheum Theater is beautiful - it is a classic, old-fashioned theater from the early 20th-century. By New York standards this theater is actually very large. But beware: when they updated this theater they should have expanded the bathroom situation. The bathroom lines are crazy:... More

We saw the Lion King at the Orpheum and the show was fabulous. The theater on the other hand could use some updating. We had VIP tickets and the legroom in the VIP seats is not any better than in the rest of the theater. The bathrooms are crowded and there definitely aren't enough women's restrooms. The men's restroom is... More

Most recently saw the Lion King broadway show. The seats were good although we were placed right behind the handicapped seating area and the lack of floor slope put everyone in that row's heads much higher into the stage view than others. Bathrooms are down a couple of flights of stairs and the elevators are inadequate for show-time traffic. The... More

I love so much about the Orpheum - it's beautiful and brings wonderful quality productions to the area. Saw the lion king and it was fabulous! But . . . I am a 5'11" tall woman and my son is 6'2". The seats were very uncomfortable. I couldn't even cross my legs without standing slightly! Luckily my son had an... More
