They used to show a lot of “B” movies and double bills. Probably the least attended movie theater in the city. My parents were there the night the ceiling started caving in. The theater was demolished shortly thereafter.

The Orpheum Theatre was located on Queen Street. Anybody know the address? On the Sault St. Marie page on Facebook, it states that the Orpheum is “right next door” to the Biltmore, existing now as the Lock City Grand Theatre. The Biltmore opened in 1950 (658 seats), became the Odeon in 1965 and closed in 1989. It was a bingo hall, then it was restored in 2007 as the Lock City Grand.

Using the Google street view, the Orpheum was probably to the right of the Biltmore/Grand, and demolished. There is a newer building in the view, with an alleyway to the right of this. In the archive photo of the Orpheum, there is an alleyway to the right of the building. The same? Maybe.
