Located on Lawson, between Pine & burnet, the Kiamichi still stands. Pan up four buildings on the left to get a closer view of this cute cinema.

Comanche had two walk in theatres, the Joy and Ritz. Google maps offers this modern view of the downtown district, but I’ve no idea which of these buildings were once cinemas.

This is a modern view of Main Street, Hammon. Pan left to get a good look at that first building that looks like a former theatre. It has a recessed entranceway, and theatre style exit doors on the alley. What do you think?

This is a recent shot of the commercial area on E. Main St., Bokchito, and this is the only building that looks like a former theatre. Pan up and down the street and see what you come up with.

Here is another view of the Grand Theatre taken from Broadway & Walnut. Wonder if the Movie Poster Services was once a theatre too?

This is a modern day view of downtown Fairland. 110 is now Fran’s Flea Market, which could have once been a cinema as there is (what looks like) an auditorium in behind the building.

Go to link below and type in “altus paramount”. Compare the two buildings on either side of the Paramount Theatre photo, then you will see that the vacant lot seen above is the exact location of the Dollhouse (AKA-Wigwam, Paramount) Cinema.

raybradley commented about Movies 1 & 2 on Mar 13, 2011 at 6:58 am

Patrons could not switch auditorium because The Movies concession stand devided two separate lobbies. Of course this caused the added expense of having to have two sets of restrooms too.
This is the shopping center where The Movies 1 and 2 sat. The cinema was located where the roofline dips in the middle.
