The fourth Orpheum Theatre on Broadway in Downtown Los Angeles opened on February 15, 1926, as the final Los Angeles venue for the Orpheum vaudeville circuit. After a $3 million renovation, started in 1989, it is the most restored of the historical movie palaces in the city.

The Orpheum has a Beaux Arts facade designed by movie theater architect G. Albert Lansburgh and has a Mighty Wurlitzer organ, installed in 1928, that is one of three pipe organs remaining in Southern California.
The Orpheum theatres are named for the Greek mythological figure, Orpheus.

  • The seats are tiny people do get ready for that. And get ready to get your steps in if you are sitting up top and have to go to the bathroom. Otherwise, it's got an old architecture still up and it looks cool. So if you're into that then it's dope. So if someone you like is there I'd go, but leave early because parking will sell out quick sip don't show up last minute.
  • Tremendous theater. In downtown Los Angeles. Plan to arrive early to beat traffic and secure good parking and just relax at one of the neighborhood bars or restaurants.
