Vancouver Civic Theatres is organizing a special 1920s-themed event on November 24, 2017 to mark the Orpheum Theatre’s 90th anniversary.
Join CBC radio host Bill Richardson and the VSO's Maestro Bramwell Tovey for an evening of celebration, silent film, and live vaudeville. The event will feature local acts and silent film classics set to Mighty Wurlitzer and grand piano.
The programme begins at 7:30pm (doors open at 6:30pm) at the theatre, 601 Smithe Street, Vancouver.
Guests are encouraged to come dressed in 1920s attire, and there will be prizes for the best costumes!
The Orpheum Theatre, designed by Scottish architect Marcus Priteca, opened in 1927 as a Vaudeville theatre, later serving as a movie house. Since its restoration in 1977, it has been the permanent home of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
The Orpheum Theatre was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1979.
