Orpheum TourOrpheum Theatre Vancouver, British Columbia
Theatre, Heritage — Behind-the-scenes
The Orpheum, a designated National Heritage Site, was built in 1927. Each year the theatre hosts international musicians, popular concerts, and unique events; it is also home to the beloved Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
The 90-minute walking tours are hosted by the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame and reveal some secrets of the theatre's history. One story includes Frank Sinatra almost being kicked out of the theatre for breaking dressing room lights while he practiced his golf swing!
A string quartet from Vancouver Symphony Orchestra School of Music will be playing before the tours begin!
