State Theater - Allentown PA, 1926

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Orpheum Theatre was opened in 1906 and featured Keith Vaudeville until 1924. It then went over to movies and was renamed State Theatre. It was redesigned circa. 1925 by Philadelphia theater architect William H. Lee. The redone foyer was reported to be "fairly breathing the atmosphere of Spain." The State Theatre opened October 11, 1926 with Rudolph Valentino in “The Son of the Sheik”.

The State Theatre has since been demolished.
