  • a monthly Poetry group that meets the fourth Thursday of each month (no charge)
  • Wine & Beer Tasting groups
  • historically, we hosted an Anime group and a group that played UNO
  • the Jean Seberg Festival for the Arts

If you have a cultural interest which you’d like to see sustained at the Orpheum, send me an email, and we’ll set up a time to talk!
