Unfortunately, I Accidentally Added Another Orpheum Theatre Here On Accident Because I Accidentally Went On The Michigan Page Instead Of The Wisconsin Pageā€¦ Well The Location Originally Had A Capacity Of 465 As Of Its Coming Soon Ad From July 1914. However According To The Dunn County News Said That The Orpheum Once Caught On Fire A Couple Of Months Before Renaming To The Stout In 1949.

The Orpheum Theatre opened August 8, 1914 with 465 seats and Mutual Studio films. On April 13, 1929, the theatre transitioned to sound playing, “The Banker.”

Miner Theatres Circuit rebooted the Orpheum as the new Stout Theatre on November 3, 1949 with yellow acoustic tile and acoustic wall coverings to hide the Orpheum’s dated design. The theatre closed in 1956 and sold to the Menomonie Clinic which flattened the floor and remodeled the space.
