Orpheum Theatre San Francisco History

The Orpheum Theatre was built in 1926 to house the vaudeville performances of the famed Alexander Pentages, a famous producer who ran a circuit of theaters across the United States and Canada. The architecture was created by the famed B. Marcus Priteca, the Scottish architect who was a favorite of Pentages. Priteca designed the Orpheum in the style of a 12th century Spanish cathedral. The duo built 28 total theaters together, with the Orpheum as one of their most prized. In addition to vaudeville, the theater was home to many silent films, and served as the main theater for all of San Francisco's audiences. When the Orpheum Theater opened, it was one of six theaters that lined Market Street, the main street of downtown San Francisco that runs from the bay to the Civic Center. In the middle of the century the Orpheum Theatre was the home of the San Francisco Civic Light Opera. In 1953, the theater was completely renovated to present Cinerama, which only lasted about a decade, after which the theater became a movie theater. In 1998, the theater went through a $20 million renovation and restoration to bring the theater up to date for its newest adventure, to house world class stage productions.
