Home of the Vancouver Philharmonic Orchestra, this venue was rather disappointing with a large group of "street folk" camped on the pavement at the main entrance.

Was here for Steven Tyler with Loving Mary band. We were seated in the middle of the upper balcony. Great looking venue - very cool just to be in the building. Smaller venue for this kind of concert so we were closer to the stage...More

Most of the high school graduation ceremonies are done in this historic building. Stage, walls, ceiling, pillars all so beautiful.

Granville Street spans many, multiple city blocks and

nights are the most popular and lively, with young

Where is the best seating for seeing a one-man musical show? Have never been to this theater and optimum seats can vary from what looks good on the map. Any suggestions?

Inside of Orpheum, there is a kind of bar. You can have a drink some icecream, but for food you should go outside. Plenty of choices for every taste.
