Orpheum Theatre logo contest entries now being accepted

Entries for a new logo for the Orpheum Theatre are now being accepted

The Orpheum Theatre in Fairfield has been closed for nearly a year, but now a theater board is working to open its curtains in the near future.

The plan is for the theater to be more of an arts theater that plays smaller films.

Currently, all new seating is being put in, a new audio visual system is being installed and a café that will serve tapas and beverages is being constructed.

For all you creative people out there, your work could be on display.

â??So the logo contest is kind of somebody's opportunity to kind of have their stamp on our local movie theater and it's going to be on our letter head, it'll be on our publication, our Facebook page. And we're looking for something that kind of goes along with our theme which is 1930s art deco, but we don't want to be too stringent on -- we don't want to hold back people's creativity,â?? said Ken Malloy, Orpheum Theatre Board Member.
