May 21, 1921, issue of ‘MOVING PICTURE WORLD’ has an article detailing opening of “new” Capitol (nee-Dreamland) Theatre, with clear photos. It states that the project cost $200,000, plus a $25,000 pipe organ, with a marble lobby and ticket booth. Interior colors were decorated in mulberry, ivory, and blue, furnishing supplied by Lucas Theatre Supply. Seats were upholstered in blue Fabrikoid.
In the book ‘BROKEN BOW, THE FIRST CENTURY’ there is a sharp 1950’s photo (p67) of both the Tower and Arrow theatres. This book states that these theatres were located at Main St. off First St., on the east side of the street. Google Maps street view indicate the Tower still stands, but the Arrow looks as if it might have been replaced by a newer building.
The 1927 book ‘TULSA, CITY BEAUTIFUL’, p-233, has sharp photos of the Rialto auditorium & lobby. Sure looks like a John Eberson design to me; http://cdm15020.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/compoundobject/collection/p16063coll1/id/1504/
