Listed in the Film Daily Yearbook’s 1941 and 1943 editions as having a seating capacity of 250. The 1950 edition gives a seating capacity of 288.

I’ve got some beautiful pictures of the Rook Theater which I’ll add asap. This one’s a performing arts theatre exclusively now. It’s multi-colored and very striking from the outside.

Just met a lady who works at Lowe’s here in Irving, Texas . She’s a daughter of the Rooks and worked in this very theatre when she was a very young girl. She said they also had houses in Erick, Oklahoma and Gainesville, Florida.

Correction to the above: The lady I spoke with was a granddaughter of the Rook family, not a daughter. Wrong generation on my part. on February 12, 2011 at 10:16 am

I don’t know about the performing arts thing… It reopened as a video store in 2010 with movies shown on Friday and Saturday nights.

Drove through Cheyenne OK today. The Rook appears to be closed and undergoing some restoration/remodeling? New pic in Photos section, January 20, 2016.
