The Orpheum Theatre in South Bend was advertised in the March 2, 1912, issue of The New York Clipper as part of the Allardt Circuit, which was headquartered in the Majestic Theatre Building, Chicago, and booked through the Western Vaudeville Managers' Association.

This photo on the Granada Theatre’s photo page shows the Orpheum just up the block from the Granada, and across the street from the Palace. The Orpheum’s entrance was in the central of three bays, so the address must have been 222 N. Michigan Street. The site is now part of the plaza fronting the Morris Performing Arts Center.
