The historic Orpheum Theater, located at 220 East Main Street in Marshalltown, has long been a landmark in the community. The building has played host to musical and theatrical events, including the Live After Five summer concert series, for many years. The theater is known as a cultural center and widely-appreciated entertainment venue.
Currently, the theater is being used by the Marshall County court system to hold overflow court proceedings, as the Marshall County Courthouse is undergoing renovations. When the county tenancy ends, the Marshalltown Community School District will assume ownership of the facility. There is no date set for the transfer of ownership at this point.
