“Gorgeous Theater/Staff is Meh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

Went here to see Morrissey; the theater itself is beautiful. The only tip I have is that the orchestra pit is reserved for members and when they dont show up, they release the tickets about an hour before the show or when doors open so if being close is important to you, then dont waste time on bad seats. In addition, if you call the box office that day, the staff will tell you "the pit seats are all gone". Don't believe them and don't expect to get in the pit without a pit ticket.

“Always Entertaining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The Orpheum is a dynamic force in the theatrical life in Memphis.
Musical/play selections are always current or "need to see" like Phantom.
I have no problem with the seating as I am short, but try to sit on the aisle if you are tall.
Friday movie nights during the summer are always fun and entertaining.
Thanks, Pat Halloran and staff!

“Uncomfortable Seating”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

Not all seats have good views, so be forewarned. However, all seats are very uncomfortable. Drinks and snacks available in lobby.

“Terrific, and also at night.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

There's lots of history involved in this theater. It's still active, but there was nothing showing the night I was in town.
