This was the second Orpheum Theater in Tulsa (the first Orpheum Theatre was located on 3rd Street and became the Rialto Theatre -it has its own page on Cinema Treasures). The 1,500-seat Orpheum Theater opened on August 17, 1924 with Richard Talmadge in “Let’s Go” on the screen and 5 acts of vaudeville on the stage. It began as a vaudeville venue and got some of the top acts in the country. Movies were also screened. It was equipped with a 2 manual Wurlitzer organ. In 1931, the theater switched to showing first-run films. It closed in March 1970 and was torn down later that year.
