Over the years the Orpheum's Classic Summer Movie Series has become nothing short of a beloved tradition, not only for our patrons but for the Orpheum Staff as well.
At times, there have been some passionate debates in the office over what theme we should focus on and which wonderful movies should make the cut. But this year, we left the themes behind as the Orpheum Theatre celebrates its Movie Series fans with a wide selection of fan favorites and audience picks!
In addition to offering hits like LABYRNTH, CASABLANCA, THE PRINCESS BRIDE, and THE WIZARD OF OZ Sing-Along on the Orpheum big screen, we're amping up our pre-movie activities.
Audiences can expect hands-on fun like costume contests, special guest appearances, local beer tastings, photo booths, drink specials and, of course, movie trivia. We'll be letting movie fans vote on which ending they would like to see for CLUE, zombies are always welcome at our Zombie Double Feature, and come celebrate Shark Week with JAWS. Want to enjoy a one-of-a-kind family outing? Come to a Tea Party before the matinee showing of Shirley Temple in THE LITTLE PRINCESS.*
There are so many great reasons to spend your summer in Downtown Memphis. Between Trolley Nights, Peabody Rooftop Parties, Redbirds games, and the Summer Movie Series, you'll have a full calendar!
