RKO Orpheum New Orleans

Photographed 22 July 1980, Nikon F, Tri-X film.

John Maher, the art director for New Orleans Magazine hired me to photograph this old movie theatre. The photos were to run in a story trying to raise money to renovate and save this classic old theatre from the wrecking ball.

I used two Speedotron 2400 ws strobes, one in the balcony with the camera, and one in the balcony below, to light the theatre.

Is there anyone out there from New Orleans who knows the fate of this theatre?
