We have visited the Orpheum Theatre on several occasions. This is an absolutely beautiful theatre, however, because of its age, seating can be an issue. We attended "The Book of Mormon" last night and the gentleman who sat in front of me was rather tall...More

My wife and I saw Aladdin at the Orpheum. Our seats were lodge B 110. It was great seats and fantastic show. When I looked around at other seating options I realized there’s not really a bad seat in the place. Go and enjoy.

This theater is so beautiful. I've travelled the world and been to opera houses in Sydney and Spain. None of them compare to the beauty and the craftsmanship of the Orpheum. San Francisco does it right.

Visit here for almost all Broadway touring plays that to town. Located on Market Street about 12 blocks West of Union Square and most hotels. Easy walk from Union Square if you stay on Market Street you should be fine. The Theatre has 3 levels...More

Civic Center
Civic Center is the seat of power for all things
government and performance-related in the city.
Although its streets are best walked during daytime,
numerous cultural gems are within close proximity to
one another. The symphony, opera, ballet, and jazz
center offer year round entertainment within the
shadow of the city’s Beaux-Arts crown jewel: the gold
tipped dome of City Hall.
