The Orpheum

Recognized as one of North America’s finest concert halls and one of Canada’s most significant historic interiors, there is strong impetus to keep the Orpheum as a viable performing arts venue for the City of Vancouver. Proscenium continues to work with the City through incremental phases of work as part of Vancouver Civic Theatres’ long range plan to upgrade the Orpheum to accommodate a broader range of uses.

Proscenium’s award-winning work on the building to date includes its Acoustic Shell in 2000, Lobby Upgrade and Bars 2008, and Seating and Washrooms in 2009.
