The Orpheum in Vancouver is a theatre and music venue on Granville Street, a major street running through the middle of downtown Vancouver.
The Orpheum originally opened in 1927, and has undergone several ownership changes, but despite a threat in the 1970s to turn it into a multiplex movie theatre, today it has been restored and is the home of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
As with many buildings in Vancouver, both the interior and exterior of the theatre have starred in various TV shows, such as Battlestar Galactica and Fringe.
This is a 15-shot, 3-exposure HDR panorama (i.e. comprising of 45 photos in total) using the Sigma 10-20mm lens at 10mm. As can be seen, significant distortion is required to display this as a 'flat' image -- the edge of the stage visible at the bottom left and right is, of course, straight.
