Orpheum Theatre Memphis History

The Orpheum Theatre in Memphis first opened in 1928 as a movie palace and is one of the few movie palaces from the Twenties still standing. The huge theater cost 1.6 million dollars to build in the Twenties and was built on the former site of the Grand Theatre but is twice the size of the previous theater. The Grand had been a vaudeville theater with a reputation as the finest theaters outside of New York before it burned down after a performance by Blossom Sealey in 1923. Known as the South's Finest Theater, Orpheum Theatre is now one of the premiere venues for musicals and Broadway style productions.


Orpheum Theatre Memphis Events

After a long history as a movie palace the Orpheum Theatre has firmly established itself as one of the top destinations for big time theatrical productions and motivational speeches by the likes of Jillian Michaels. Some of the best productions in the world have been put on at the Orpheum Theatre including War Horse, Black Violin, Tyler Perrys Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman Scorned, The Book of Mormon, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and more. Occasionally, between runs of plays and musicals, big time concerts by the likes of Morrissey or stand up comedy performances by hilarious comedians including Katt Williams have also been put on at the Orpheum Theatre in Memphis.


Memphis, Tennessee

One of the most visited tourist destinations in the United States, Memphis, Tennessee is overflowing with entertainment options. As the largest city in Tennessee as well as the largest city on the Mississippi River, there are plenty of attractions, restaurants, and of course countless bars and nightclubs full of the great live music for which Memphis is known. There are always great festivals going on in Memphis and depending on the time of year you visit you could check out the Beale Street Music Festival, the Memphis Italian Festival, Carnival Memphis, Cooper-Young Festival, the Indie Memphis Film Festival, the Memphis International Jazz Festival, the International Blues Awards, or a variety of other one of a kind events.


Orpheum Theatre Memphis Seating Layout

The Orpheum Theatre underwent a serious renovation in 1984 that cost 4.7 million dollars and helped make the venue suitable for hosting the big time Broadway style events that it is now known for. It comfortably seats 2,400 guests for its biggest shows and has state of the art sound and lighting systems which provide for an unparalleled experience at the theater. Unblemished sight lines assure that there is not a bad seat in the house.


Trivia

It is rumored that the Orpheum Theatre is haunted by two different ghosts. One of the ghosts is a 9 year old girl named Mary who slams doors and flickers lights when employees leave to say goodbye. She is supposedly a very friendly ghost. The other ghost does not have a name, but is supposed to be a masked man who sits in the rafters near the air ducts during performances and has been known to wave at audience members.
