Barclay Morgan’s the Morgan Theatre launched October 25, 1915 with the live play, “Pair of Sixes" and movies by Paramount just days later. By late 1916, the venue was turning more to motion pictures for its programming. The Henryetta Candy Kitchen and Ice Cream Parlor served as a de facto concession stand for treats prior to and after the show. The Morgan switched to talkies on April 26, 1930 with “The Benson Case Murder.”

The theatre was operated by Griffith Amusement Circuit during its major overhaul in 1941 to a streamline moderne house. In 1954, it was downgraded to twice-a-week operation. The Morgan closed early in 1956 though had some sporadic screenings and events over the next year.

Thank you, Dr. John wilson, Stillwater
