Polishing a Beaux Arts Gem

Fresh from a multimillion- dollar restoration and renovation project, the historic Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles (www.laorpheum.com) is open again and trolling for group business. While the 1926 Beaux Arts venue now features modern comforts such as air conditioning, wheelchair accessibility and a cutting-edge audiovisual system, its rich decor remains intact and grander than ever. Seventy-five years of grime have been stripped from the lobby’s famous marble walls, and its two 12-foot-tall crystal and bronze chandeliers now tower over 2,000 new, lavishly upholstered seats.
