12. Phoenix: Orpheum Theater
This 1920s Arizona theatre was built in a Spanish Baroque style with intricate murals to give patrons the impression that they were enjoying the shows 'al fresco'. After a 12-year, $14 million restoration, the Orpheum reopened in 1997. It is the current home of the Phoenix Metropolitan Opera.
