OKLAHOMA CITY â€" The Oklahoma City Museum of Art is looking for submission of stories, photographs and memories of the Centre Theatre, in honor of the 60th anniversary of the theaters opening on Christmas day, 1947
The theatre had a long run from its opening in 1947 to the mid 1970â€™s when it was eventually closed down. Throughout its operation, the theatre was more than just a movie theatre; it was a venue for sports telecast, civic fundraisers, religious lectures, and even the site for a square dance. It was a special place for many people.
To celebrate the history of the theater, the Museum of Art is looking to create a history of the theater with the help of those who grew up with the Centre Theatre. The museum will be taking 200 words or less short essays describing experiences and stories of the theater. In addition, the museum is also looking for old photographs taken of or at the Centre Theatre.
