The Orpheum is a theatre and music venue in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Along with the Queen Elizabeth Theatre and the Vancouver Playhouse, it is part of the Vancouver Civic Theatres group of live performance venues. It is the permanent home of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. The Orpheum is located on Granville Street near Smithe Street in Vancouver's downtown core. The interior of the theatre was featured prominently in the award-winning 2004 reboot of Battlestar Galactica, where it is dressed to portray a heavenly opera house.
The City of Vancouver purchased the Orpheum from Famous Players, declared it a heritage building, and renovated it extensively, reopening it in 1977. Renovations included a new mural in the dome in the centre of the auditorium ceiling, a permanent orchestra shell and, in 1983, the restoration and expansion of the lobby. The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra was and is the primary tenant of the venue. The Orpheum's superb acoustics place it among the premiere venues for unreinforced (acoustic) classical music in North America.
