Not a bad seat in the place. Feels intimate but very proper and sophisticated. Easy walk to grand hotels, Beale Street, and the Fed ex Arena, home of the Memphis Grizzlies

Thank you Orpheum Theatre group for bringing Nine Inch Nails 2018 tour to your small venue. It was an awesome experience. The staff were friendly and helpful when locating our seats. Definitely will visit this theatre again, and we came from Birmingham, AL!

We recently sat in the balcony and the seats were great! The floor seats seemed to have less leg room

We went to see The Illusionists. The theatre was gorgeous with lots of history. One piece of history has to do with the ghost of a 12 year old girl. I didn't catch the whole story but she is said to haunt the Orpheum!

How could you not love the Orpheum? I've been there many times over the years for different events and it's fascinating every time. I've been to plays, movies, and concerts...it's a great venue. I always look forward to going to the Orpheum.
