Opened as the 2,708-seat RKO Orpheum Theatre on November 25, 1931 with William Boyd in “Suicide Fleet” and 5 acts of vaudeville. It was part of the 10-story Art Deco style Mississippi Riverside Hotel which had 200 guest rooms and 50 apartments. of the RKO circuit of theatres. The movie house lasted for 42 years, closing in 1973 amid competition from suburban multiplexes.
Following its closure, the Orpheum Theatre became a venue for stage shows and concerts and was eventually donated to the RiverCenter for the Performing Arts.
The theatre was restored between 1984 and 1986 with much of its Art Deco interior returning. Today, the renamed Adler Theatre continues to delight Davenport residents.
