The red neon on the Orpheum Theatre in Hillsboro Illinois was removed in 1978 when the theatre was remodeled. At that time the neon was replaced with a piece of white plexiglas with red plastic "ORPHEUM" letters glued to it.
Using this 1964 photo from the Historical Society of Montgomery County Illinois we were able to reproduce the original font for the replacement neon sign.
