Once a grand theatre, the 1,200-seat Burford Theatre became the product of changing times and changing theatre chains. It has been donated to the Arkansas City Area Arts Council for use as a center for the arts for the community. Renovation/restoration began in late fall of 2004. Much of the early decor is still intact.
The theatre was built in 1924 in a L-shaped building in the center of downtown Arkansas City. Shortly after its opening on September 15, 1924 with Colleen Moore in “The Perfect Flapper”, a commercial building was erected in the lot in front of the auditorium. It was later divided into 3-screens. It was reopened on September 29, 2016.
