That’s an interesting idea, Lucky. I’ll start poking around. Those yearbooks aren’t difficult to locate.
Thanks, Lucky, but I already have those. They show the outside and ticket booth. There are also two shots of people at the concession stand. So, my quest for lobby, auditorium and other photos continues.
Okie, where did you get the information about the lobby? That is very interesting. Do you other interesting things about the Broncho?
Lauren, “broncho” isn’t a mispelling. It is a less common, but legitimate, alternate spelling. In fact, there is another “Broncho Theatre” in Indiana or Illinois.
Raybradley, That site no longer has any photos at all. They refer you back here. Were the photos the same few that are in the Max Chambers library? It was only the Academy for a short while before it closed. The type of photos I am searching for are ones that show the entire lobby (or at least just more than the concession stand)or the screen/curtains/auditorium.
My above request also applies to the later years, when it was known as The Academy."
I’m on a personal quest to find photos of the auditorium, lobby, booth and exterior of The Broncho, other than the ones mentioned above and the one I just added to this site. I’ve had no luck with the members of the Spearman family that I know. If anybody visiting this site has a lead on any, I’ll be very grateful.
The Edmond Plaza Twin was taken over by Main Street Theatres in 1981, not 1983. I bought it from them on 3 February, 1983, and owned it until 7 February, 1991. It was operated for about a year, after that, by Precor Entertainment, then closed forever.
When the theatre opened on Thanksgiving Day, 1967, the first movie it showed was “The Dirty Dozen."
