News About This Theater
- Jul 23, 2008 — Dark Knight promotion at Orpheum
This theatre originally opened as the 600 seat capacity Fellis Theatre in the 1920’s. It operated as a vaudeville house with a combination of live acts and movies. It was renamed Orpheum Theatre in 1929. By the early-1940’s it was operated by the Frisina Amusement Co. It ran continuously until 2000 and closed for about two years. In 2002, new seats and DTS stereo was added in addition to marquee restoration.
A new operator took over in 2003 and the theatre is more vibrant than ever with almost a cult following of regular customers from as far away as St. Louis and Springfield, IL. The balcony was converted to a second auditorium in the early-1980’s and is still that way.
