Constructed in 1926 by Rapp and Rapp, the French Renaissance interior and limestone Art Deco exterior, with Orpheum sign towering over State Street, made the building a Madison icon.  Originally built as a vaudeville venue and a movie theater, The Orpheum Theater opened its doors on March 31, 1927 and was the first building in Wisconsin to have air conditioning.  In 2013, after the theater had spent years in disrepair, the Gus Paras family bought the building and lovingly restored the theater to its former glory.  Currently, exclusively booked and operated by Live Nation, The Orpheum Theater hosts regular concerts, stand-up comedy shows, weddings, parties and special events.
