The Orpheum is a top spot for theater and even movies in Memphis . We have enjoyed several concerts,plays, and caught a few movies there during their Summer movies series. Patton on their big screen was really spectacular. The Orpheum always has a great series...More

Restored and ornate theater which has touring Broadway musicals as well as other performers. In the summer there are classic movies shown along with organ prelude and cartoon. Seats and knee room cramped but being renovated

We met here for a walking tour of Beale Street. It was interesting to hear the story of the theatre from our tour guide. There is a walk of fame outside with stars for people who have performed here.

I enjoy visiting the Orpheum for the shows, concerts, and plays but there needs to be more space and the prices of foods and drinks are a little to much

If you have good seats you will enjoy the performance. However I do not recommend anything higher than the balcony.

The Orpheum Theatre in downtown Memphis (west end of Beale Street) is a terrific venue for plays and most performances. If you love old theaters, you need to check out the Orpheum.

Always enjoy going to the Orpheum Theatre. Such a lovely interior. The plays are always good and have never gotten a bad seat.

I love the Orpheum, prefer to be right up front, but the side seats aren't too bad. Try to stay out of the back few rows. Quite a selection of offerings; something for everyone.

We saw Riverdance on 3/25 - it was a great show. The Orpheum is a great venue. Even being located downtown - it was easy to access and lots of parking is located nearby.

Several people that I spoke with prefer the mezzanine seats instead of the orchestra seats, if you are seated away from the aisles in orchestra. I have had seats in the Mezzanine in the center and I thought they were fine.
