January 20, 1918 – Full diary entry:
“St. Paul. Slept till 11a.m., went to Orpheum with Dorothy. Left for Barnesville Sunday night.”
An Orpheum Theatre exists in Minneapolis today, but this was not what Robert was talking about. The Orpheum we know opened in 1921 as the Hennepin Theatre and was renamed a year later.
Robert’s Orpheum opened in 1904 and was renamed the 7th Street Theatre.
