Conrad’s Orpheum Theater was constructed in 1917 and represented the latest “state of the art” motion picture theatre. The historic gem we know as the Orpheum Theatre opened on April 5, 1918 with the silent movie, A Modern Muskateer and was accompanied by the Rachac Orchestra.
Throughout 2018, PAC is celebrating the Conrad Orpheum’s centennial with several events and contests.
If you have memories, photos or stories about any of the Orpheum happenings throughout the years, please let us know. Call PAC president Dale Sheldon (271-5330) to share your ideas.
