About SHN Orpheum Theatre

You marvel at the magnificent carved doors leading to the lobby. As you enter, the dramatic 12th century Spanish palace is revealed. A delicate balcony overlooks the crowd and on to a rich-toned tapestry overhead. Yet it’s the full-bodied lions ringing the ceiling in the auditorium that demand your attention. Mythical figures from Spanish folklore surround as you move down the aisle. An ornate sun and twinkling stars softly illuminate your seat from above in the elaborate cathedral that is the Orpheum Theatre.

Built in 1926 as a showcase for theatre magnate Alexander Pantages, the Orpheum has featured vaudeville, silent films, major motion pictures, musical comedy and other theatrical entertainment. Two major renovations have dressed up the theatre and allowed for easy accommodation of large-scale Broadway productions. The Orpheum has since been named a San Francisco Historical Landmark. When you visit, you’ll know why.
