Osage Theatre program

The second location of the Odeon Theatre (1913) was converted into the Osage Theatre which opened on June 27, 1940 with Anna Neagle in “Irene”. British film star Anna Neagle appeared ‘in person’ to open the theatre which was operated by the Griffith Amusement Company. The Osage Theatre was closed on April 16, 1974 with Paul Newman in “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”. It was demolished in May 1981 and the site is now a parking lot.

Though I’ve been unable to discover when the Osage Theatre closed, I did find a reminiscence by someone who saw the 1964 release “Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte” there. It seems likely that the Osage would have managed to hang on at least until after the Eastland Twin opened in 1968.
