Galesburg - The Orpheum Theatre

57 South Kellogg Street


To ensure Galesburg's historic Orpheum Theatre is authentically restored and maintained through general community support and private funding. To provide a performing arts centre that will offer quality entertainment, enhance educational and cultural opportunities and provide an additional venue for tourism and economic growth for the region.

About Us:

The Orpheum Theatre is more than bricks and mortar; more than the rich sounds of a jazz quartet or the laughter of children. Located in the heart of downtown Galesburg, Illinois, the opulent Orpheum Theatre is a monument to the spirit of Galesburg and Knox County - a love of history, the arts and community.

The Orpheum is owned by the Knox County Civic Center Authority, operated by a small staff and held together primarily by volunteers. Funding is through the generosity of local industry, small business, individuals and a 2% hotel/motel tourism tax.

Great play! The kids were all super good. Of course my great granddaughter Nora Admire was extra awesome. Just saying! It really put me in the Christmas spirit. Thank you all

Amazing historical theater. Saw the Doobie brothers when I was in 8th grade, and have been there for uncountable events. About to see Jay and silent Bob.
