The Orpheum in Malden MA was included in the MGM Theatre Photograph and Report project. There is an exterior photo dated April 1941. The entrance was on the right end of a large old brick commercial building at least 3 stories high. There was a sign reading “Orpheum” mounted just under the windows on the second floor and a one-line strip to post attractions running just above the wide entrance. There was a center ticket booth with sets of doors on each side. The Report states that the Orpheum has been presenting MGM films for over 10 years; that it’s over 15 years old; in Fair condition, and has 542 seats on the main floor and 243 balcony seats, total: 785 seats. The Orpheum is listed in the 1927 Film Daily Yearbook as being open 6 days per week and having 800 seats.
