This is a beautiful place. It is worth seeing if you don`t see a play or a show here. All of the volunteers are great.

We love the Orpheum! They have great shows there for a variety of interest and the shows this year look awesome! They have really improved the facilities and it is a grand old theater.

Pretty good place to see a show or movie. Easy to park in that area and within walking distance to Beale Street for dining and drinks either before or after show.

Beautifully restored classic theater with comfortable seats and good acoustics. Saw "Something Rotten" here and it was made even better by the theater itself. I'd love to go again...

We did not go into the theater for any show, but just walking outside was worth it. Seeing all the stars on the ground of the famous people who played there was great. A nice old theater with a lot of history.

I went here because of Elvis. The inside doors were open with staff there but obviously no movies showing at the time of my visit. Lots of history to this theatre like Leow's state as well. Glad they have kept it around.

The comfort Inn is not that close but the Peabody is and the Sheraton but the seats are not real spacious and they are flat but you will be able to see if there is not a tall person in front of you

Hello! Let's take you questions in order. 1. The Comfort Inn is at 100 N Front St (one block west of Main) and the Orpheum is at 203 South Main. So, one block over and about 8 blocks South. It is about an 8 to 10... More
