The Orpheum is one of the most beautiful concert halls in Canada. Built in 1927 and refurbished in 2009. The Orpheum is located on Granville Street near Smithe Street in Vancouver’s downtown core. In its original building permit the Orpheum was classified as a movie palace, based on its almost 2800-seat capacity, extravagant decor, and full provisions for cinema projection. Now a rare survivor of the palace type, it was once among a group of 17 similar theatres built throughout Canada. The theatre is fully equipped to host large productions, conferences, film shoots, and other events.
