Friends recently took us to a movie premier at the Orpheum and it was a great experience. I have rarely been downtown but the theater is beautiful and it is a decent area with activity around it.

The sound quality is amazing. The ceiling, walls, and hanging chandeliers have a rich, opulent look. The...More

Cool stop to watch a stage show. My friends & I watched a live stage show : Set It Off. Set It Off Was super funny. The cast was amazing. Even though the theater reminded me of an old antique home.

The Orpheum Theater is stunning. It is totally redone to look like it did when it was built as a vaudeville house in the late 20's. Every detail is seen to, every piece of wood perfected, all of it beautiful. If you are ever in...More

This place is awesome. The courtesy, professionalism, attitude. All that. It seems like everyone in their employ is happy . That says something about management. These people are obviously allowed to make judgement calls in an instant and just make things happen. They went out...More

cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

They do, but if I were you I would leave super early and have some great food in Downtown LA. There is fine dinning, taco trucks, Mexican stands, whatever you could want is in Downtown LA. But their food and wine is fine.
