A.D. Fortner’s Airdome was constructed in 1913 at 114-116 West Woodson operating for three seasons. It launched June 1, 1913 with a live play “Sweet Clover.” In its third season in 1915, films were added to the programming mix. The venue was closed permanently at the end of the season in September of 1915 as Fortner built a new hardtop theater, Fortner’s & Newell’s Theatre across from the El Reno Opera House. The Airdome was converted for use by Farmers' Produce Company for retail use beginning in November of 1915. (This venue was only known by the name Airdome Theatre during its three season run… not the El Reno Airdome)
