Well, hope OKC is supportive of this new endeaver as this old theater has become somewhat of a land mark. Thanks for posting.

“Never On Sunday” Playing at Midwest Theatre in Sept. / Oct. 1960 which featured Melanie Mercouri, playing a Prostitue with the next movie playing was Butterfield 8, starring Elizabeth Taylor, a part time call girl…Was playing when I began as an Usher.. Ironic as the first run followed with high gross features like Cimarron, Longest Day, etc and ended life X rated porn features in the mid 70’s..Sad ending for a grand theatre..See ad pic’s of above in Photo Section.

Family vacationed in the Sulpher area in 50’s, 60’s and would frequent a movie theatre in town but, not sure if this is the same one..Seems that it may have been destroyed by fire..But, always enjoyed Sulpher area and old Platt National Park. Thanks for sharing.

Yes, Cinerama was the best in projection technology of the period but, with the visible separation of 3 camera shots compared with todays super hd, today is the obvious choice but, for the late 50’s, early 60’s, Cinerama won hands down…Technology march forward with today’s Cine..No comparison and guess what, It will continue to evolve with improvement on never ending changes…Still like to see the old b&w films in spite. Keep on Truckin!

Cimarron commented about State Theater on Oct 28, 2015 at 3:03 am

Yeah, the steep seating was way tooo comfortable for the period…My buddy and I spent late hours on a Fri. nite and would go the to State on Sat. afternoon but, fell asleep in those seats often after a fun nite…It wAS A FIRST CLASS theater with the most comfortable seating of any theater at that time in OKC….Thanks

Eggman, my note above of May 11, 2013 re: Basil Displays..They did a lot of displays for Movie Theater’s and probably other’s like Retail Store Displays. I’m pretty sure Basil’s team did the Marily Monroe for the Criterion…He also did false front displays for “Cimarron” & “Longest Day” that played at the Midwest Theater..I believe he may have been the only one in OKC that produced those types of theater displays..They also did work for many other theaters in the okc area showing major runs….Hope this helps!
