The original Orpheum Theatre was opened in 1904 and was located on S. 7th Street and Hennepin Avenue. From 1921 it became the 7th Street Theatre.
It had been replaced by this ‘new’ Junior Orpheum Theatre which opened as the 3,500-seat Hennepin Theatre on 16th October 1921 as a vaudeville house for the Orpheum Circuit. Appearing on opening night were The 4 Marx Brothers. It was soon renamed Orpheum Theatre. It went over to movies in 1927 and the name was changed to RKO Orpheum Theatre.
The Orpheum Theatre ended its run as a movie house in 1979 and has been a legitimate theatre ever since.
Renovated in 1993, the Orpheum Theatre still showcases the best touring broadway shows in the country.
