Styles: Colonial Revival
Previous Names: Grand Opera House
Designed by architects John Eberson & Joseph Foucart in a Colonial/Federal Revival Style, Tulsa’s Grand Opera House opened 1906 to showcase big time touring stage presentation and opera companies. It burnt down October 9, 1920 and was rebuilt, reopening in 1921. This theater was quite successful with touring opera vehicles until the mid-1930’s when depression era financial woes caused ticket sales to slump. It was then leased to feature Grand National Pictures, but still presented an occassional live stage show.
During the World War II years, the house became a popular newsreel venue, then briefly switched to second rate burlesque. Finally, during the late-1940’s, the Grand Theatre closed and was converted into a furniture sales showroom. It was demolished in 1973.
