The theater cost approximately $2,000,000 to build, an extraordinary sum of money at that time. The Orpheum opened in 1927. It contained 2,764 seats, and the walls were lavishly painted ivory with a background of turquoise, magenta, and gold. A 7 ½ foot-wide chandelier hung on the ceiling.
The final show to play was Walt Disney’s “The Monkey’s Uncle” on July 31,1965. The Orpheum was torn down that same year, replaced by a bank.
