Ardmore trivia;
Actress Rue McClanahan grew up here, and Gene Autry’s “Worlds Wonder Horse” Champion (A dark sorrel with four white stockings and a medium-wide blaze) is buried beneath the sidewalk in front of the Tivoli Theatre in Ardmore.

By the way, the Star Theatre (photo right) is that rough stone, Romanesque style building left of the law offices.

This is a recent look at the business district of Erick, OK. Any of these buildings could have once housed the Gay Cinema. Pan for better views.

Here is a recent street scene of the business district in Erick. Any one of these structures could once have held a small cinema. Pan for better views.

You’re correct, Sir, regarding that building being much too small. Google maps are always a few numbers off on the exact address. Perhaps the Gem Theatre sat a couple of doors to the left, or on that now vacant lot to the right.

Commerce, OK, was hometown to #7 Micky Mantle of New York Yankees Baseball fame. There is a bronze statue of Micky near the high school baseball diamond.

After carefull study of that vintage photo of the Electric Theatre, then perusing modern street views of Commerce, it looks as if the old cinema no longer stands. See what you think!
