Orpheum Theatre

425 Broadway
Hannibal, MO 63401
Opened 1922
1,660 seats

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).

Democracy is alot like getting old. It's not very pleasant, but it beats the alternative.
