Does anyone know if the work on the North side exterior archway and balcony have been completed?

Wow, the theatre looks great. Appears they must have done a chemical cleaning of the exterior brickwork during their renovation. The new signage looks sleek too. Updated but not overbearing. Went back to the original name. Nice job!

The re-do of the carriage entrance is currently on-hold for the arrival of terra cotta from Italy.

The re-do of the porte cochere on the St. Charles side of the theatre was completed last December.

This photograph of the Orpheum Theatre was taken by George Mann in 1927.

When will the theater re-open or is the Hotel still trying to expand and demolish the auditorium and build two ballrooms while retaining the front of the Orpheum? Hope there is some good news about it being readied for a grand re-opening. Too bad the last owners tiered the main floor – hope that was not concrete and can be removed and seats put back in.
