Orpheum Theatre Omaha - Indulge in the beauty of an Omaha tradition

History

Built in 1927, the Orpheum Theatre was originally purposed for the vaudeville heydays. A Wurlitzer Style 235 Special pipe organ was put in for the first performance and became a marked draw of the theater. The Orpheum Theatre raised the curtain for almost 3,000 visitors, including the Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben and the mayor of Omaha. The program brimmed with comedic antics and dances topped with a silver screen showing of The Fighting Eagle.

By the mid-20th century, vaudeville's popularity had declined and like many other theaters, the Orpheum transformed into a movie house. By the spring of 1971, the theater faced dropping revenues so was forced to close. But by 1972, the Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben bought the Orpheum to serve as a performing arts center for the Opera Omaha, Omaha Symphony and the Ballet Omaha. Renovation efforts included new stage rigging, air conditioning, lighting and electrical upgrades, expanding the orchestra pit, upgrading carpeting and seating and preserving the interior's original splendor.

A grand re-opening featured the talented comedian of the era, Red Skeleton, in early 1975. The Opera Omaha also performed on the stage for its debut along with soprano Beverly Sills.

The Orpheum Theatre went through another transformation in 2001. The Omaha Performing Arts Center announced plans for a complete overhaul of the theater. Updates included a new stage, larger seats, new dressing rooms and improved acoustics.

Trivia

The Wurlitzer Style 235 Special three manual/13 rank pipe organ calls the Orpheum Theatre in Omaha home. A very exclusive model, this organ is one of only 24 of this kind that were built. And the Orpheum's Wurlitzer is one of 15 that still functions!

Other key history points to note about the pipe organ include that it was installed on October 9, 1927 - just in time for the Orpheum Theatre's debut performance the next day. It was originally developed as a "Unit Orchestra," a style established by organ pioneer Robert Hope-Jones. In that era, it was not uncommon to have the organ accompany silent movies. In the 1930s, organ music programs blasted through the radio airwaves directly from the theater.

By the 1950s, the organ sadly fell to the wayside, but by 1963, members of the Omaha Theater Organ Society diligently worked to get the organ back into functional condition, replacing dead magnets, rewiring where needed and making replacements as they could. Some more restoration work was done to the organ in the 1970s as well.

Zollman Pipe Organ Services of Wichita, Kansas, spearheaded the restoration efforts of the organ in August 2013. The mighty Wurlitzer is almost back to its original state. It is now spotlight-ready! Visitors can enjoy the organ's full tonal palette just as audiences did over eight decades ago!
