A nice, small-town theater with two sets of stairs at the rear of the theater leading up to a large, full balcony. A big, single screen surrounded by velvet curtains. Large, green antique lights hanging from the center of an ornate tin ceiling. Vintage popcorn machine in the lobby…you could watch it pop, put in a dime, and get a delicious bag full! Ornate tin on the walls, blue mirror-glass tile pillars on either side of the entrance’s interior. Wooden, glass-paned doors created the entrance, with the big letters “OT” above them on the building’s exterior.
Left to deteriorate since mid 1980’s, plans were underway to convert it into a restaurant. Not wanting to suffer the indignity of conversion, the Orpheum perished a proud, but neglected theater when, sadly, it burned to the ground November 11th, 2006.
