Did he conflate the Grand with the second Orpheum in 1910, or was this house actually called the Grand for a while? If it was, it had to have gone back to Orpheum by 1918 as I’ve found references to the Orpheum dating from that year.

The first Orpheum Theatre in Twin Falls was operating by 1906 in a small, wood framed building on Main Street. This photo depicts the second Orpheum at 131 Shoshone Street. It also gives a glimpse of the Gem Theatre next door, advertising a Clara Kimball Young movie.

In this photo the second Orpheum has become the Rialto. A sliver of the Gem’s building, no longer a theater by this time, appears here as well.
