The Orpheum is a delightful theater full of ghosts, memories and architectural beauty. The acoustics are wonderful and there is no other theatrical theater around that compares to the atmosphere, sound and elegance of the Orpheum. Many artists have stood on stage and many more will come because theater is a part of Memphis and it's heritage with plays reflecting... More

This place is a snapshot in history when the theater was a grand place to visit. The management does a great job at attracting top talent to come here. Movie night is a great experience if you can see a big screen feature here.

Attended holiday show, had a great view of the stage. I found parking very easy as we arrived eary and only had to feed the meter for one hour. I did go the box office for our tickets and saved the on line fees.

Christmas, old world charm and Mannheim Steamroller it doesn't get much better than that. Six of us attended this concert and had a fantastic time. The building itself is absolutely gorgeous! But the size of the seats is a challenge for the average person let alone someone of any size. Your leg room is limited and you get to know... More

This was a top notch performance at a top notch venue, very much enjoyed the show and the theater is very beautiful. I had attended a performance of Cats there a few years ago and there were all kinds of problems with the sound system and I was avoiding going back. These tickets were given to me as a gift,...

I visited Memphis in June 2011. I went to the Orpheum to see a performance of Disney's Beauty & the Beast on Broadway. The theatre was suitable for the performance. Not too large and seating was comfortable. Performance was really enjoyable. You can take the trolley to the theatre too. This theatre is suitable for all ages including families.

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
