Great theatre, average movie. Popcorn is salty and the ice creams are cold. Must try the champagne tickets

The Orpheum theatre is a delight with its art deco architecture. It also shows a huge range of films, some of which are not available elsewhere. If you haven't visited and enjoy art deco architecture, go now!
