Opened as the Fox Orpheum Theatre as part of Fox Midwest Theatres. Another theatre that used to pack the people into the streets of downtown Cape. Ornate theatre with a good size balcony. Large lobby with a grand staircase to each side. The front had a large marquee with an upright ‘Orpheum’ sign.

This was also the only theatre in town where the “colored” people could go, they had a “special enterance” in the alleyway.

From the Google maps it looks as if this theatre has been demolished. Nothing but a big empty lot.
