The site was completed in 16 months with an amount of $2 million. For the opening show at the new theater, approximately 3000 people were present.
Due to the introduction of motion pictures and it increasing popularity, Orpheum being known for the vaudeville was no longer a hot venue. The management of the venue decided to convert the place into a movie house. But the classic elegant golden setting of the theater didn't go well with the theme of being a cinema and finally the venue was closed for motion pictures in 1971. The dark clouds circled the venue for 3 years and no major activity made this place a public sensation till 1975. At the reopening of Orpheum Theatre Omaha Tickets in 1975, standup comedy gigs and opera by Beverly Sills welcomed the audiences. The site regained its glory and became the top elite choice for theater entertainment.
