The building in the middle of the Google photo is Tee’s Barber Shop, 120 N. Greenwood. I don’t know if this is the original theater building.

Sorry to disagree, but during the 1920s the Dixie could not have possibly been the second largest theatre in Tulsa.
During the 20s the (1906) Grand Opera House had a seating capacity of 1200, (1912) Brady Theatre had a capacity of 4200,(1917, 4th St) Orpheum Theatre could seat 1400, (1922) Akdar Theatre held 1800, and (1926) Ritz Theatre opened with 2000 seats. Didn’t the (1907) Rialto seat well over 1000?

I have references made that the Dixie Theatre is listed in Film Daily Yearbook’s 1931-1933 and 1940 as a Negro theatre.
