About The Orpheum
The Orpheum Theatre in downtown Wichita originally opened on Sept. 4, 1922, as the first atmospheric theatre in the United States. The auditorium features colonnades, balconies, lamps and a starry night sky meant to evoke a summer evening in an old Spanish garden courtyard.
Today the Orpheum is in the process of a careful and accurate restoration and is home to concerts, films, cultural events, local music, dance, lectures and entertainment. Going strong after more than 90 years, the Wichita Orpheum is a beautiful theater with a reception venue and versatile stage.
There are daily public tours open to the public for a $10 donation. Please call for more information.
