At the 1913 Orpheum Theater, a deceased actor’s ghost is said to linger. Nicknamed Larry, the unknown and angry ghost was first noticed by living actors around 1960. Larry was known to blow fuses and drop sandbags onto living actors. And in 1972, a technical director heard a loud noise behind him, turned around, and there was a tin photo of a bearded man on the ground. He put it on his light board, but no one knew the man, and soon after the photo disappeared. It was believed to be Larry. Some say Larry was an actor who took his life after failing to land the part of Romeo in a production here.
