Self Guided Tour of Vancouver's Historic Orpheum Theatre

This summer Vancouver Civic Theatres (VCT) is offering self-guided tours of the Orpheum, one of the most beautiful concert halls in North America.

The Orpheum, a designated national Heritage Site, was built in 1927. The theatre hosts international musicians, concerts and unique events and is home to the beloved Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.

World renowned theatre architect, Marcus Priteca designed over 220 theatres in North America and the Orpheum is considered one of his finest accomplishments. The Orpheum boasts soaring lines, gold leaf, grand staircases and 145 original crystal chandeliers.

The Orpheum was built as a Vaudeville Theatre and Silent Movie Palace. It still houses the 'Mighty Wurlitzer Organ' which is the last theatre organ in Canada still in its original home. 

Tours are availabe 3 times per day on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Tickets are available online at or in person at the Tickets Tonight booth located inside the Tourism Vancouver Visitor Centre.
