Photo snapped circa 1997-98.
The interior lighting is not the best at the Oriental, but I took some shots tonight following a superb Bill Frisell concert. See the Photos section.
I saw The Thing with Kurt Russell here in 1982 – by then, the Federal was a dark, dank dollar-house venue.
Picture taken in spring 1994.
Picture taken April 1989? Is that Jackie Chan’s Speed Zone on the marquee (obscured by trees)?
Pic taken April 2001.
The Fall Of The Roman Empire – released March 1964.
The Magnificent Ambersons – released July 1942
It Happened In Flatbush – released May 1942
Picture taken October 1997.
The Ramparts We Watch was released in September, 1940.

I was driving west on Interstate 70 by the Kansas-Colorado border today (February 23, 2016) when I spied the upright blade sign for Burlington, Colorado’s Midway Theater heading east on the back of a truck. The multi-colored marquee is on its way for further restoration, and the renovation of the theater is fully underway. New pictures in the photo section, and the Midway’s facebook page is here: https://www.facebook.com/Midway-Theater-869556759754221/?fref=nf
Ignore “Texan” in the label above. It’s the Rex Theater.
Did a little digging ad learned the Hollywood Theatre opened on March 13, 1968. A Man For All Seasons, winner of six Oscars, was the debut feature. New pictures in the Photo section.
The White Tower, a mountain climbing drama starring Claude Rains, was released on June 24, 1950.The Flame and the Arrow, a medieval times adventure with Burt Lancaster, was released July 9, 1950.
January 2016: The former Hollywood Theatre – home to movies, a short run as a live music venue in the 1990s (Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers played there), storage for the University of Oklahoma – is now Koda Crossfit Norman, an exercise facility. New pics in the Photo section.

Circa winter 2003.
Current picture newly added to the Photo section.
A nice marquee shot, but it does not appear to be the current Ellis marquee.
The Ellis also hosts live performances. See new pictures in the Photo section.
A picture in the entry for Rocky Ford’s Grand Theatre looks more like this building’s entrance.
Judging by the street view of the Rex Theatre, I’d venture this is a photo of that theatre, not the old or new Grand. I could not locate the old Rex at the Rocky Ford address listed on this site. I wonder if “The Big House” was any good?
