Oakman Theatre

The Oakman Theatre opened December 24 1919, designed by C. Howard Crane and seating over 1,200. It was located on Woodrow Wilson Street near Leslie Street. The theatre closed in 1937, but reopened for a short time in the 1950’s again before closing permanently as a movie house. The building was used as a church, who moved out in around 2009.

The theater is still listed as opened in the 1949 Film Daily Yearbook, so it probably reopened sometime in the early 1940s.
