You are standing on Hennepin Avenue near between 10th and 11th Streets, looking northwest. This is a renovated, historic theater called "The Orpheum". It was opened by the Marx Bros. in the 30s. Minneapolis has a downtown theater district of sorts, which features another restored theater(The State, pictured next) and a smaller, modern professional theater("Hey City Theater"). The first two host touring Broadway plays, musical acts, and local benefits. (date: 1999-09-01)
