Clarksburg’s second Orpheum Theatre opened around 1911 as the Odeon Theatre. It originally featured vaudeville from the Gus Sun circuit, but in later years became exclusively a movie house. Around 1921 it came under the control of Jack Marks, who controlled several other theatres in and around Clarksburg, including the original Orpheum Theatre.
After Marks opened the Ritz Theatre in 1928, he closed the original Orpheum Theatre, which was converted into offices for the Monongahela Power Company. Around this time he moved the name Orpheum to the former Odeon Theatre, at first calling it Marks' Orpheum Theatre, and later just the Orpheum Theatre. He continued to operate the house until 1952, when it was closed. The building has since been demolished.
