The Orient Theatre originally opened in 1915, designed by architect Charles E. Futcher. In 1919, the firm of Hoffman & Henon was hired to remodel the Orient. The theater could seat over 600 and stood on Woodland Avenue near 61st Street.
Around the 1930’s or 1940’s, the theater received a new Art Moderne facelift, including a new facade, with a triangular marquee, with the name “Orient” above each side. The theater closed in the mid-1950’s.
An electrical supply store is at this address today, but I am unsure whether or not it is housed in the former Orient or it is a new building. Any additional information on this theater would be appreciated.
