Does anyone have any information on the Orpheum’s name change in the `50’s when this picture of Elvis was taken. It’s definitely the same building & marquee.

Elvis worked as an usher at the Loews State in Memphis,but was fired for being late too much.

The Orpheum was purchased by M A Lightman in 1940 and was renamed the Malco (M A Lightman CO). It was renamed the Orpheum in 1976 after being taken over by Memphis Development Foundation.
