Orpheum Theater, New Orleans

4.3
The Orpheum Theater is a nearly century-old Beaux Arts theater in the heart of New Orleans’ Central Business District. Built in 1918, the iconic space – which is one of the few remaining vertical hall designs in the US - has hosted vaudeville acts, silent films, movies, corporate meetings, weddings and countless concerts. More than a stunning historical structure, this reimagined space brings an entirely new tier of entertainment and private event space to New Orleans.

  • The historic beauty of the theater is a must see destination, but the calendar of performances is even more awesome. The theater is very accessible with excellent parking choices nearby. The art decor style remains beautifully prominent while the building itself was updated after Katrina. Acoustics are amazing.
  • Seats on the balcony have an incredibly small amount of legroom, less than an airplane. I'm 6'2" and had to sit sideways so that my knees were turned, otherwise they wouldn't fit. It was very very hot inside the theater itself, but cool as soon as you went though the doors to go to the stairs, bars, and restrooms. Also had almost no reception with Verizon. The theater has a Guest Wifi network but it's locked?
