Located on the Near West Side, on Roosevelt Road at the intersection of Ashland Avenue, the Orpheus opened in 1913.
The movie house was later operated by the Marks Brothers circuit, and still later, by the Essaness circuit. By the 1940s, the theater was renamed the Joy. In 1952, the Joy was acquired by the Gomez family, who renamed it the Tampico, for their home town in Mexico. It was still in operation as a Spanish-language movie house by the mid-1970s.
A drive-up bank is located today where this movie theater once stood.
