“Vancouver Symphony”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

The theatre has fantastic acoustics and we go to the Symphony 7 or 8 times a season. The music and musicians were top notch. The repertoire was Wagner's Flying Dutchman Overture, Brahm's Piano Concerto No.1, and Schumann's Symphony No. 3 (Rhenish).

“Old classic”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

This is a classic movie palace that has been converted to a civic theatre. The ambiance is great and the acoustics are good. It's a wonderful venue to see a performance.

“turn of the century living museum”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

even if you don't like opera or other theatrical entertainment, the orpheum is a must see. it's like stepping back in time to an opulent turn-of-the-century theatre. if you like opera or music the acoustics are first rate. the orpheum is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
