The Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis is a gem from the past, the dust and sands of time removed so that its brilliance can once again shine in the sun. The theatre is a majestic Beaux Arts-style edifice, playing the most popular Broadway shows, with the result often making it hard to find Orpheum Theatre parking spaces in Minneapolis. The Orpheum is a survivor from the last years of vaudeville, when radio and cinema took preeminence over live entertainment. The theatre still functions quite well as a modern venue despite being close to a century old, providing a spacious vessel for soulful musicals.
When the Orpheum first opened in October 1921, it had a rather different function than it currently does, along with a different name. Known at that time as the Hennepin Theatre, the auditorium served the genre known as vaudeville, which ranged from musical acts to acrobatics, comedies and dances and a myriad variety of smaller acts, all listed under the same playbill despite little or no relation between them. Vaudeville came to the fore in the last few decades of the 19th century, with the Minneapolis Orpheum opening only shortly before it lost its appeal. Like other theaters, the Orpheum had to adapt to the changing tastes of America, so it became a cinema house. This brought it success, with films such as Gone With the Wind selling out three weeks in a row.
The Minneapolis Orpheum began putting on modern musicals such as Fiddler on the Roof by about 1959, in addition to award-winning films. By 1988, the theater was owned by Bob Dylan and his family, which they sold to the city of Minneapolis, which began to restore the building, which was complete by 1993. The Orpheum has a capacity of 2,579 split between two levels of seating, the auditorium ceiling colored in whorls of golden yellow, muted red and a lazy light blue, with grand chandeliers in the confluences, and aluminium leaf molding here and there. Past performances include The Lion King, Miss Saigon, Victor/Victoria and AIDA.

How do I present my my pass on-site?
Easy peasy! As the vast majority of locations in our network accept a mobile pass, this means you can use your phone or other smart device to show proof of your prepaid purchase once you arrive at the parking facility. To be sure, verify the instructions on your pass to confirm the validation method. That section is titled "When You Arrive" in-app or "How To Park" if viewing on a desktop or mobile web.
For a seamless, no-printer-required experience, check out the ParkWhiz app! Thousands of space at your fingertips. Rest assured that if searching and booking on a mobile device, we won't show you any locations that require a printed pass! At least not until cars come equipped with printers!
If your location does not accept mobile passes, you'll need to print the pass before leaving the house.
Do I have in-and-out privileges?
In most instances, no. The majority of locations on ParkWhiz, including all those in New York City, do not allow re-entry.
If any specific parking facility does allow for you to come & go during the reserved timeframe, you'll see a "Reentry Allowed" amenity icon listed; this is shown in the details section both pre-purchase and post-purchase.
If you don't see anything on the listing page pertaining to specifically to reentry privileges, it's best to assume that you will not be allowed to come and go throughout the duration of your parking pass.
Are there any additional fees on site?
Generally, no. What you see online is what you pay as long as you park within the timeframe on your parking pass. Any time parked outside the arrival or departure listed on your pass will likely incur an additional onsite fee, as determined by the parking provider. ParkWhiz purchases include tax.
The only exception to the above pertains to oversize vehicle fees, which may apply to any vehicle larger than a sedan. Fee amounts vary between individual Parking Operators, and will be assessed on-site if you do not prepay for an oversize vehicle through our platform.
Although pricing structures are determined individually by the facility owner/operator, ParkWhiz prices tend to be cheaper than drive-up in most cases!
