The Oklahoma Theatre was built to showcase product from B studios that churned out action adventures, potboiler melodramas, and westerns. During the 1950’s the Oklahoma Theatre specialized in outer space and science fiction films which proved to be very popular amongst local teens.
The Oklahoma Theatre exterior was two story, tapestry brick, commercial style with a narrow box office flanked by French paned doors, a dogbone upright sign, and a tracer light box marquee.
The Oklahoma Theatre lobby was small and simple, dominated by an oversize concession stand.
The Oklahoma Theatre auditorium had a single middle isle, dull plaster walls were lined by stacked-cone side lights, cheap stage curtains covered a large screen.
The Oklahoma Theatre closed in the late-1950’s, then was converted to a stationary shop. Today the the building stands vacant, marquee removed, but the upright sign is in place. Heavy steel alleyway exit doors still flank the former theatre.
