Description

Phoenix New Times' Description

Originally opened in 1929 as a vaudeville house and saved for posterity by a preservation movement that began with the Orpheum's purchase by the City of Phoenix in 1984, this gracious facility reopened in early 1997 to great -- and warranted -- fanfare. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, the building has a checkered past that includes stints as a member of the Paramount moviehouse chain, a Spanish-language cinema and a rock venue. The remodeled interior is lush and classic, a showy, almost campy, assuredly unlikely mix of Colonial Revival and Spanish baroque that somehow works. The ethereal-cloudscape-on-the-ceiling projection is pretty darned keen, too. The 1,400-capacity hall is home to a plethora of arts-slanted special events and touring shows.

    A nice small, old venue and a great place to see a show. Be sure to look up at the ceiling it's beautiful.

    Great line up this fall including Demitri Martin, Andrew Dice Clay, Ron White, Chris Botti, The Musical Box Concert, John Prine, and more!
