The Sioux City Orpheum
Since the grand re-opening, Orpheum Theatre has provided the Siouxland area an opportunity to attend performances by fabulous performers like Bill Cosby, Sheryl Crow, BB King, Bob Dylan, Wynton Marsalis, David Copperfield, Willie Nelson, Jewel, Alison Kraus, and Jerry Seinfeld. In addition, thousands have witnessed spectacular Broadway shows and enjoy hearing the Sioux City Symphony.
Absolutely breathtaking and beautiful venue with its crimson carpeting and seats, a magnificent grand staircase and several crystal chandeliers including the 'Grand Chandelier' in the main theater. Has excellent acoustics for performances. Always a delight to attend a theater production or musical performance here. The theatre inclines or slopes downward, so seeing over the heads of those in front is not typically problematic. Any visit would not be fully complete without a visit to the 'very grand' women's bathroom on the lower level with its brass/gold swan fixtures! Simply magical!!
Astounding. I remember when they did the remodel. They took a theater that was falling down and turned it into a world class landmark. This is a showpiece of historical restoration. The venue itself is worth the price of admission, but the shows they bring to town are outstanding. This is definitely something Sioux Citians should be proud of
Daniel Tiger LIVE was so much fun for adults also!! Orpheum Theater just adds so much to the experience. So Beautiful, everywhere you look something amazing and historical to admire!! Children just can't get over how big and beautiful Orpheum Theater IS!!
Overall the Orpheum is there very nice theater. With it being built almost 100 years ago it has held up well. My only complaint comes with the seating. I’m 6 foot tall and normal build. For me to sit in the chairs my knees are touching the chair in front of me. I have been to several shows and each seat was just as uncomfortable as the next. I know it would be difficult to redo seating, but I feel like it would be a plus. If your under 6 foot tall you will not have a problem. If your 6’5” or more, I’m sorry! Back to the shows, they have been bringing in some high quality shows and I hope they continue to do so. I’ll attend every Broadway show that I can get to.
Beautifully restored theater that is a landmark in Sioux City. Offers a variety of events all year long. Not a bad seat in the house! The downstairs restrooms are elegantly decorated and the many chandeliers are delightful to behold. Home to the Sioux City Symphony.
