Your picture is of the old Orpheum Theatre which, sadly, was demolished in 1926. But happily, the New Orpheum Theatre opened in 1927 and is still in use. It is gorgeous!
The front door (from 16th Street) now goes through the old City National Bank Building to the Box Office & Lobby. The bank building has been made into charming apartments. (I live there.)
The fly in the ointment is the new walkway across 16th. Strangely, it is not open to anyone who does not park in the OPPD garage—and—let’s just say it—it is seriously ugly!
Anyway, go visit the lovely Orpheum. She’s a Grande Lady!
