I did my due diligence and read quite a lot of reviews before I went to this theatre because I wanted to know what I was in for. I made the mistake of getting sucked into a review that talked about how horrible the leg...More

Recently renovated. We always enjoy going to the Orpheum Theater. Plenty of parking nearby. Well worth the drive into the city.

Saw Tedeschi Trucks perform. The venue has an old Hollywood charm in Downtown LA. We sat in one of the balconies off to the side. Good sound system. This area is becoming rejuvenated so there's lots of good eateries around.

Saw a rock/pop concert here. The theatre itself is gorgeous. Sound was good. Sight lines from floor were good. Nice little bar lobby area for pre-show drinks. Even had a funky little taco spot for a quick dinner.

This is a beautiful old theater, built in the 1920s. It is well maintained and clean. We sat in the mezzanine and the view of the stage was great. If you are short, this is the place for you since the stadium seating allows you...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
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

Yes, there is an elevator. It is an old-fashioned attendant-operated elevator in keeping with this being a very old theater. The elevator is the size of a small kitchen! Service is good too. The elevator operator arrived... More
