The Orpheum Theatre is an internationally recognized arts and entertainment venue listed on the national register of historic places. Built in 1929 as a vaudeville house, the Orpheum underwent a major renovation project that restored it to its original splendor. The theater’s active volunteer corps, managed by the Friends of the Orpheum Theatre, provides free monthly public tours to highlight the theater’s storied past, lavish décor and Spanish baroque architecture. The 1,364-seat Lewis Auditorium is accented with dramatic gold leaf columns and a hand-painted ceiling that depicts bright sunset hues and starry night sky views. The extensive renovation included modern upgrades and state-of-the-art audiovisual components which enhances the overall ambiance for the off-Broadway stage productions, concerts, corporate meetings and special events held at the venue today.
