Vestibules are made for walking through, but the one newly restored at the Orpheum Theatre is stopping people in their tracks. The gleaming, elegant entrance instantly transports you to the 85-year-old showplaceâ€™s glory days, while stirring anticipation of what the theater will look like whenever its loving, deliberative restoration is complete. How fortunate the community was to have had volunteers step in to save the Orpheum two decades ago, so that it could again be entertaining thousands of people each year with movies and performances. Now, the Orpheum deserves all the help it can get as it tackles the rest of the big job, including the full restoration of the Spanish garden-inspired auditorium.
