Here is an interior shot of the Alamaba Theatre
This interior photo is not the Alamaba Theatre.
Actually it’s an early shot of the River Oaks Theatre on West Gray – currently operated by Landmark.
The interior photo is not of the Tower. It is actually the Delman Theatre. Same architect.
Here is the correct photo of the Tower
ictjennifer: Yes the Wichita Orpheum was Eberson’s first attempt at ‘atmospheric’ design. However, the Majestic in Houston became his first full blown ‘atmospheric’ movie theatre. This building became the standard and the begining of Eberson’s other ‘atmospheric’ theatres. What a shame this historic movie palace meet with the wrecking ball. Let’s hope the people of Wichita preserve the Orpheum gem!
