Rickards and Harry Nace. The Orpheum was designed in the atmospheric style, with the audience sitting in a garden surrounded by Spanish-style buildings, murals of mountains, and forests, under puffy white clouds moving across a deep blue domed sky.​​</p></div>/images/bg-text-03.pngRightSame WindowSame WindowSame WindowSame WindowNew Window/media-center/reimagined/media-center/fotot/media-center/volunteerOrpheum ReimaginedFOTOTVolunteer/images/bg-text-03.png2
