The Orpheum was designed by T.P. Barnett and served both as a film and live performance venue. The Broadway entrance pictured here was originally a loggia leading from Broadway back to the theatre which is set back on Third Street. When I passed in the Spring of 2012, the block had seen better days and the theatre was in the midst of confused ownership and renovation plans. (Cinema Treasures).
Humor can be dissected as a frog can, but the thing dies in the process and the innards are discouraging to any but the pure scientific mind. (E. B. White)
