Wasn’t this cinema also known as Dollhouse and/or Penthouse in the 1970’s?
This theatre had a qausi old west look. Wonder if it had any interior decoration?
Elaborate movie palaces are certainly a lot of fun to explore, but on hind site, if picture and sound quality were good, did it make much difference if sometimes the theatre itself was drab?
Casual inspection of 1940s photos reveal that the actual name was Oklahoma Theatre, not Oklahoman.
Sharp 1939 and 1943 photos can be viewed on this web site, type in word “varsity”, then go search.
Nice 1942 exterior/interior photos can be seen on this link. Type word “campus” and/or “boomer”, then go search.
To view a 1940 exterior image of the Oklahoman Theatre on this web site, type in word “theatre”, then press search.
After looking at interior/exterior photos I can’t help but wonder if Harold Gemino was architect of this cinema. The facade and rustic, exposed beam auditorium are so similar to his Sooner Theatre, Norman, OK.
Shown here is a 1970 shot of the 1903 Overholser Mansion. Henry Overholser built the 1889 Opera House, 1903 Overholser Opera House, 1913 Colcord Airdome, and was held an interest in Stanley-Warner stock.
and an essay on Overholser.

An understandable mistake, fellas, but the Palace became the Tulsa Theatre.
Up on Main and Second, the Wonder Land Nickelodeon was renamed Strand Theatre.
Look at this 1885 shot, its a fun image of one of Tulsa’s earliest theatres, photo caption tells all.
These two 1930s images are most likely those of the Pix Theatre in Atoka, OK.

Interesting shots of the lobby and auditorium can be seen on below site. Exterior photo labelled 1935 actually was snapped during the 1970s.
Inside the star is the original 1935 exterior appearance.
Looks as if Plaza signage later was moved over to adorn the former Roxy exterior. Note that the rough stone facade match in bottom two pictures.
