The original Orpheum Theatre was built in 1903 as a vaudeville theatre. It was demolished in 1930 to build this new Orpheum Theatre which opened February 11, 1932. Taken over by RKO and modernised several times. In 1955 after a modernisation by architect John J. McNamara, the seating capacity was for 2,600.
