Rare RPPC ORPHEUM Silent Movie Theater c1912 w/ Movie Marquee Signs (ELGIN IL?)
Rare, ORIGINAL circa 1912 Real Photo Postcard of an ORPHEUM MOVIE THEATER. Terrific View of this Early Silent Movie House. Unknown location, however, this RPPC was discovered in an old photo album that mainly dealt with the area in and around Elgin, Illinois. One of the films being featured at the theater (see scanned images) is "The Leading Lady's Baby" which was released in 1912 by Pathe Freres. In the center sign, (where the men are standing) at the very top insert of the sign, I can just make out the word "Orpheum" but there is a second line that I cannot make out. A Wonderful Vintage View of the front of this theater, replete with signs, advertising: "BIG FEATURES ALL WEEK - WE ARE SHOWING A FINE COMEDY TO DAY "SOMETHING WITH A LAUGH" - "ONE OF THOSE EXITING WESTERN DRAMAS TO DAY - DON'T FAIL TO SEE THEM"
Measures approx 3 3/8 inches by 5 3/8 inches
