The Orpheum Theatre is one of the oldest ‘Cinema Treasures’ in the country.
Opened in 1852, the theatre has hosted everything from vaudeville to symphony to movies and is now a rock concert venue.
The original entrance was on Washington Street (just down the street from the old Paramount and RKO Keiths/Opera House), in the heart of Boston’s downtown shopping district, but that entrance was turned into a retail store and patrons now must walk down a back alley to get in.
The Orpheum Theatre was host to a now-famous U2 concert and has hosted innumerable acts over the years.
The Orpheum Theatre is currently owned by The Drucker Company. In 2009, promoter Don Law acquired the contract to operate the Orpheum Theatre through his company Crossroads Presents. Later that year the Orpheum Theatre was closed for renovation, reopening later that year.
It has remained one of the most popular concert venues in all of New England.
