DescriptionLooking at the Orpheum Theater in Peoria, IL from the side. It is a brick and stone building with an ornately carved facade. "Orpheum Theater" is carved into the top of the facade, and a light up "Orpheum" sign is suspended from the wall and hangs over the entrance. Another sign that reads: "Irwin & Herzog" is also suspended over the entrance. Under the entrance a sign reads: "Matinee Today 2:30." A woman is standing under the entrance overhang near a stairway with a child standing near that, and a man is in a doorway. Antlers of some kind are attached to the stone wall over a side door. The building next to the theater in the foreground has a sign for "Peoria Musical College." Past the theater is a painted wall advertising plumbing services.
