About Orpheum Theatre

The Orpheum Theater can easily be missed, as it’s hidden at the bank entrance of the Corner Mall in Downtown Crossing. Built in 1852, it was once the home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and though several upgrades have been taken on over time, it is still one of the most historic venues in the city and maintains much of its old world charm.

While it’s been utilized in many ways over the years, including as the Opera Company of Boston, a movie theater, and a house for vaudeville shows, it’s currently a live concert hall. Performers from days gone by include the Grateful Dead, the Police, and Bob Dylan.Currently you’ll see primarily mid-level alternative bands like Grizzly Bear, Panic! at the Disco, and Metric, though there are frequently club nights, and comedians like Margaret Cho have been known to sell out the 2,700 seat theater.

Parking is relatively easy, thanks to several lots in the area, and the venue is very close to the Downtown Crossing T stop where you can pick up the Green, Orange, or Red line. Beer can be on the expensive side here, averaging $10 a bottle, and though wine is also available there are no mixed drinks or hard alcohol.
