Vancouver Civic Theatres -- Orpheum (Official)
Previously operated by: Famous Players
Architects: Benjamin Marcus Priteca
Styles: Spanish Baroque
The Orpheum Theatre was built in 1927 by the Orpheum vaudeville circuit and opened November 7, 1927. It was used mainly for movies until the early-1970’s.
The city of Vancouver purchased and restored the building in 1974 rather than see it divided into smaller theatres. It reopened in 1977 as the home of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and as the host of pop and classical concerts. Recently, the Orpheum Theatre has begun screenings of silent film classics, accompanied by the theater’s organ.
