News About This Theater
- Sep 10, 2007 — New marquee for the born-again Rivoli
The 2,000-seat Orpheum Theatre was opened by Saxe Amusements on March 14, 1922 with Norma Talmadge in “Smilin' Through” & Harold Lloyd in “Never Weaken” plus 5-acts of vaudeville. It was equipped with a Barton 3 manual 15 ranks theatre organ which was opened by Dr. Hyland Elman Slatre-Wilson. In the 1950’s it was taken over by Fox West Coast Theatres. It was last operated by United Artists, who, in the 1990’s converted it into a four-screen theatre. In 2015 there is an ice cream shop using the lobby, and the auditorium is used for storage.
