  • Designed by architect Benjamin Marcus Priteca in conservative Spanish Renaissance style, the Orpheum opened in 1927 as a vaudeville house, and hosted performances by C. Chaplin & the Marx Brothers.
  • Sit on the upper balcony.
  • For drinks at intermission, get out of the auditorium fast as the lines can move slow. See if you can pre-order a drink before the show starts to avoid having to chug your beer.
  • This is the most gorgeous concert venue in town, and its sit-down atmosphere often results in one of Vancouver's most attentive crowds.
