Photo: Orpheum Theater Stage
It was built during the late 1920's in the era of "movie palaces" and it has a very ornate interior, as shown by this view of the stage. Astonishingly, when the theater was used to show Spanish language movies in the 1960's and 1970's, the owners painted the interior moulding black because they thought the ornate decor detracted from the movies.
The lighting was designed to simulate the night sky on the ceiling. Tomorrow I will show who the performer was. Well, sort of.
This week we are showing photos from our recent trip to the Galapagos Islands on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
