Overview

Opened on January 5, 1929, it was the pride of Phoenix, a town of 48,000. It had 1,800 seats and an early form of air conditioning, which made it the place to see and be seen in the city! Its 101 feet of stage width and 28 feet of depth made the Orpheum the only theatre between Los Angeles and Denver able to handle the traveling vaudeville shows that changed weekly.
