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

This was my second and my daughters first time at the Orpheum. She loves the older decor and her imagination glowed with thinking of men and women in their finest walking the stairs and foyers in the yester-years. Recommend spending a little more and not going into the upper balcony as seating become quite cramped if you have any height... More

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.

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.

I really enjoyed the show. My wife and i had always wanted to go to a show at this old, beautiful theater. While it could use some additional restrooms facilities we enjoyed the show and the theater.

It is very nice to have such a special place to enjoy broadway musicals and plays. We have been season ticket holders for 2 years and are never disappointed. Always worth the money.

I've been to the Orpheum many times and have never been disappointed. It offers a variety of entertainment from New York, Broadway style productions to old classic movies shown on a big screen. The interior of the theater has been preserved according to the golden age of large community theaters. There are not bad seats, and the summer period presents... More
