Orpheum Theatre information
This 1926 theater was built for vaudeville and has hosted such entertainers as Judy Garland, George Burns and Nat King Cole. It’s a truly sumptuous place with silk tapestries, a gilded, coffered ceiling, still-functioning Wurlitzer organ and an old brass box office. Fully restored, they offer a rich entertainment calendar.
