Wilmer and Vincent’s Orpheum Theatre in Allentown opened on August 27, 1906, and was designed by architect Fuller Claflin, according to this article by Frank Whelan posted December 5, 2016, on the web site of Allentown television station WFMZ. The State Theatre building was demolished in 1954, though the house had closed some years earlier. Its site, occupied by a parking lot for more than six decades, was recently redeveloped with an apartment complex.
