Viewing: Photo | Street View

A photo of the exterior of this small, Main Street movie house appeared in the January 7, 2005 issue of The New York Times (page F7). The Orpheum has apparently been triplexed, with “Ocean’s Twelve”, “Lemony Snickit”, and “Meet the Fockers” advertised on the marquee.

More information about the Orpheum’s history would be appreciated. Saugerties is situated on the west side of the Hudson River in Ulster County, about 110 miles north of New York City.

A Robert-Morton theater organ was installed in the Orpheum Theater in 1928.

The Orpheum Theatre is listed in the American Motion Picture Directory;1914-1915 edition, as is the Opera House. So both must have been showing movies at that time.

Saw this theatre on a bike trip two weeks ago, but I saw it at night. Quaint.

The Orpheum does not have a website but it does now have a Facebook page.

We are listed under the Orpheum Theatre – Saugerties NY. There are pictures of the theatre now and some vintage photos as well.
