The Tulsa Dreamland’s owner also owned the Dreamland in Okmulgee, OK, and the Dreamland in Muskogee, OK.

This website has a history of the race riots and at the bottom of the page are four theater photos. The first two are the “old” Dreamland Theater and the last two photos are the “new” rebuilt theater.

I read that this theater opened as Williams Dreamland Theater. Here is an old (not great quality) photo of this theater:

The Dreamland Theatrer was rebuilt after the June 1921 race riots. It is listed in later Film Daily Yearbooks 1931-1932 and 1940 -1955 as being a negro theatre, with a seating capacity of 612.
