The Film Daily Yearbook, 1940 edition gives the Arcadia Theatre a seating capacity of 441, same in the 1943 edition but it is listed as ‘Closed’.

Here a lovely hotel/ballroom/theatre listed as opening 1924. Don’t think this was ever a cinema, but still worth a look -

The Arcadia, located at 226 W. Randolph, operated from at least 1933 to 1943. It is not listed in the 1926-27 Enid City Directory and there are no other directories available at the Enid Public Library for the intervening years. The Griffith Amusement Company (its Enid headquarters was across the street at the Aztec Theatre) ran the Arcadia at least part of the time it was open. The current occupant of the building is the Boomerang Restaurant.
