This is a portion of the Princess ad expanded to show the upper right corner which states that the Princess is formally the “Pathe” on South Main Street.

A brief mention in the Drumright Derrick on October 15, 1915 gives the proposed opening of the Strand as October 17, 1915.

Sam Yout, manager of the Grand theater at Cushing, is in the city today assisting H. C. Miller, the manager of the Strand theater of this city, to arrange for the opening Sunday, October 17.

On November 6, 1915, the Strand is advertising the motion picture, “Neal of the Navy”, so the Strand was certainly operating in 1915.

This theatre was operating as the Pathe Theatre in 1910. The Pathe Theatre was renamed Princess Theatre and reopened on August 26, 1911. On October 14, 1911 the name was changed to the Palace Theatre.

The address should be 219 South Main Street. That is the address given for the Pathe Theatre and 219 South Main Street is the address given for the Palace Theatre in a 1922 Tulsa directory. An ad for each theatre name has been uploaded.

Lost Memory commented about Strand Theatre on Mar 30, 2014 at 5:19 pm

As Joe already posted, the Strand was formerly the Yale Theatre. In 1910 and probably even earlier, the Strand/Yale Theatre was known as the Empire Theatre. An October 6, 1912 ad for the Yale Theatre, states “Formerly the Empire”.

An item in the June 16, 1915 edition of the Tulsa Daily World states that the Yale Theatre is closed and will re-open on June 25th with a new name. That is most likely when the name was changed to Strand. The Strand is advertising motion pictures in July of 1915. All three theatre names had an address of 117 South Main Street. The Strand Theatre is listed in the 1949 Film Daily Yearbook with 320 seats.

The Palace Theatre located on 4th Street in Hobart, Oklahoma opened on January 2, 1914. The following was published in the Hobart Republican on January 1, 1914.

F. C. Thompson has just completed his new playhouse, the Palace Theatre, which is situated on Fourth street between Bolon Brothers and Moores & Cauldwell, and tomorrow night is the date set for the formal opening.

Everything is new and up to date, and Mr. Thompson is now looking forward to packed houses every night.
