Best of Arts & Entertainment 

They just don't make 'em like this anymore. Downtown's Orpheum is an opulent extravaganza of crystal chandeliers, lush carpet, heavy brocade, and gilded moldings. Add to that the theater's touring Broadway shows — which this year included Wicked and Jersey Boys — and you have a lock on this category. It also doesn't hurt that the Orpheum rounds out its schedule with intimate shows by musical artists and showings of classic movies. Plus, it's supposedly haunted.
