The Orpheum Theatre was built by the Kleist family and opened in 1927. It was called “the queen of the downtown theatres”. The Kleists also owned four other theatres, the Strand Theatre, Eagle Theatre, Oakland Theatre, and the Rialto Theatre downtown.
The Orpheum Theatre had thick plush blue carpeting and overstuffed seating. It also fetured a $25,000 pipe organ. Some other features of the building were the two bowling alleys and billiard room. It had two storefronts, one being a popular barber shop.
The Orpheum Theatre closed in 1955 and was soon demolished.
