  • Anne Zabel Studio Theater with room for up to 250 people

The three spaces are all connected by a large lobby and concessions area, and the building also boasts an outdoor patio area. The center hosts plays, concerts, dance and other forms of entertainment throughout the year. It is also a venue for weddings, meetings, banquets, conferences, trade shows and much more. The Orpheum Theater was listed on the national register of historic places in 1983. These historical plaques were created in honor of the centennial celebration of the Orpheum Theater.
