Orpheum Theater, nearing its 81st anniversary, is an intimate and elegant
hall located in the heart of the Central Business District in New Orleans.
Built in 1921 and renovated in 1989, the theater is reminiscent of many
classic European opera houses with an ornate vaulted ceiling and
baroque-inspired decoration. The theater is an example of "vertical
hall" construction built to provide perfect sight lines and acoustics for
the vaudeville shows who didn't have the benefit of amplifiers or modern
lighting. Its this attention to audio and visual detail that makes the Orpheum
the finest theater in the South.
In the early days of the theater, this Vaudeville hall featured The Marx
Brothers, Burns and Allen, the Singer Midgets and many others. Later, the
Orpheum became a premier movie house featuring top Hollywood actors such as John
Wayne, Rock Hudson, and Robert Redford. Now, the Orpheum is the home of the
Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra.
The Orpheum's rich history is full of music, theater, and dance, but now, the
theater has made a successful transition from an exclusive theater for the arts
to a theater capable of meeting your business needs.
theater is perfect for your business' corporate meetings, conventions, slide
presentations, award ceremonies, parties, and dinner parties for up to 350
guests. The Orpheum is one of the few
theaters that combine the intimacy and elegance that is a successful combination
for business and art.
Some of our preferred clients are companies such as MTV, HBO, Shaklee US Inc.,
B.E.T. T.V. Network, Sandoz
Pharmaceutical Corp., and ITN General Motors, to name only a few, that have
found success in using the Orpheum for their business needs. But don't worry, the Orpheum
hasn't abandoned its roots in live entertainment. American Theater Arts for Youth, Comedy Central,
House of Blues, Clear Channel Entertainment, Superfly Productions, Beaver
Productions, B.E.T. Television, and Chamber Theater Productions are just some of
