The 1941 edition of Film Daily Yearbook shows the Orpheum Theatre open with a seating capacity of 250.

The Catskill Mountain Foundation has converted the former Orpheum Theatre into a peforming arts center. The Foundation had hoped to reopen the Orpheum Theatre by fall of 2006, but it didn’t re-open until around 2011.

“Already well under way is a $2 million restoration of the 400-seat Orpheum in Tannersville. Built in 1956, on the site of a silent movie-era picture palace that burned down, Orpheum had been shuttered for 22 years before being bought, as prospective state-of-the-art performing arts center, by Catskill Mountain Foundation”.

It would appear theater is not really being “restored;” based on the pictures in this article, it would appear that only the facade and some exterior walls will be saved as part of the new Orpheum Performing Arts Center: View link

The façade and exterior walls don’t look all that special. What’s it like on the inside?

Looking at the picture in the article- which looks like it was taken from about where the stage would have been – I would say that the interior was stripped down to the bare walls.

The current related website link doesn’t have any information about upcoming events at the Orpheum, but the site Friends of the Orpheum does.
