In a young city like Los Angeles, a building over eighty years old is practically a legendary institution. Downtown L.A. venue the Orpheum Theatre has been around since 1926, when it operated as a vaudeville house. Luminaries such as Judy Garland, Ella Fitzgerald, and Stevie Wonder played its stage, and the venue has weathered changes in the music industry, moving from vaudeville to jazz to rock and back again. These days, the Orpheum presents concerts, film festivals, award shows, and television shows, including an episode of American Idol.
The Orpheum Theatre’s classic auditorium, complete with loge, balcony, and boxes, can seat 2,000, and the restored lobby, lounge, mezzanine, and several bars provide elegant gathering spaces both during performances and for private events. Historical details and a close attention to luxurious preservation make the theater a character-filled yet comfortable space to watch a performance. The wide range of performances at the Orpheum Theatre includes family-friendly fare like Christmas plays to indie darlings like M. Ward. A few shows are general admission, but most have assigned tickets. The Orpheum Theatre has plentiful parking.
