Saw “Cleopatra” at this theater in 1963. Friend of mine was manager and invited his buddies from Oklahoma to be his guest for the first run showing. Was really surprised at how small the theater was but, it was nice and they really had a packed crowd that at that evenings showing. Movie, fantastic!
Work of Art! His Oklahoma City, Midwest Theater Design was very similar even down to having a center aisle. It also was demolished, quite a waste!

Fantastic job on restoration! Auditorium looks to be very similar to that of the Midwest Theater Auditorium of Oklahoma City. Design must have been by same architect, John Eberson…If you get the chance, check out the Auditorium Photo’s of the Midwest…It was demolished in 70’s….Best of Luck on your Restoration!

Attended showing of “Tell them Willie Boy was Here” shortly after opening of theatre…think it was late in 1969..It was an impressive movie house.
