    From CinemaTreasures.org: It was built by Alex TallChief, father of the famed American Indian ballerinas, Maria and Marjorie. It was built while they were young. Maria is quoted as saying that she always knew she was a star, her name was in lights in downtown Fairfax!

    It has quite a history and I believe was opened in 1926.

    We have lots of these in the San Francisco Bay area.

    From waymarking.com:

    Known originally as The Cook Theater, The Orpheum was built in 1919 by L.H. D. Cook. With 1200 seats in the balcony and main floor, it was a center of vaudeville entertainment throughout the heyday of Okmulgee, during the oil boom days of the 20s and 30s. Cook changed the name of the theater to Orpheum when he signed a contract with the Orpheum Vaudeville Circuit to bring traveling shows to the theater.

    The theater originally had double-stacked balconies, with lounges upstairs and boxes built into the main floor walls. The stage had trap doors and an elevator to the basement. There were three basements. One supposedly led to a tunnel which went underneath the city, however, it is bricked up now.

    Open almost continuously since 1927, currently open seven days a week with first run and classic movies. Technically, state of the art all around including Dolby Digital sound.

    VIP adult only balcony with new, plush seating and bar type tables. Food can be ordered from the Ritz Cafe located inside the Ritz Theatre building. The Cafe is open generally for lunch five days a week.

    Theatre has a decent stage where live performances are held. Original orchestra pit still there, but below the extended stage.

    Funds currently being raised to replace the theatre’s marquee.

    Owned and operated by Malcolm and Amy Neal for the past eight years.
