The Orpheum Theatre, originally the Pantages Theatre, is located at 1192 Market at Hyde, Grove and 8th Streets in the Civic Center district of San Francisco, California. The theatre first opened in 1926 as one of the many designed by architect B. Marcus Priteca for theater-circuit owner Alexander Pantages. The interior features a vaulted ceiling, while the facade is a Plateresque (Late Spanish Gothic) Revival. The Orpheum seats 2,197 patrons. In 1998, after a previous renovation in the 1970s, a $20 million renovation was completed to make the Orpheum more suitable for Broadway shows. The theatre is a locally designated San Francisco landmark as determined by the San Francisco Landmarks Preservation Advisory Board.Use our San Francisco travel route planner to add SHN Orpheum Theatre and other attractions to your San Francisco vacation plans.

Saw Hamilton again! Pro tip - go for seats in the Loge section and use those bathrooms for shorter lines more »
Love seeing shows at the Orpheum! The building, surrounding areas, being close enough to walk from BART make it easy to pop in and out ot SF without stress of needing to find parking. This theatre... more »
Beautiful indoor architecture. Great acoustics. Building entrance is amazingly close to the Civic Center Bart stations Market/Hyde staircase. Sat in the mezzanine so view was perfect. My only disappointment was the leg room. There isn't any. The rows are insanely close.
We came here to see Hamilton & what a treasure this beautiful classic theater house is. Beautiful old art deco interior. Perhaps the neighborhood will change over the years, as it's pretty seedy at any time, but as theater for all sorts of performances, just great. Sound was good, sightlines were super.
