The Valley Art recently underwent a complete restoration and is again a working movie house. It specializes in “art” films and animation. The theater resides on Tempe’s famed Mill Avenue (near Arizona State Univ.) and has long been a city landmark.
The Orpheum is currently for sale and has been on the market for over a year. It has been a working movie theater, owned by the Wehrenburg Theater Co. of St. Louis, up until the mid to late Nineties. It is in fair condition but the projectors have been removed. It’s future as a movie palace is in question. The city does consider it a historical building and would never allow it to be destroyed however.
