This site lists the opening date as 1945 and has a slightly different address. Also contains a small postcard:

Both the BROOK and DELMAN belonged to the powerful LOEW’S Theater Circuit.

The August 2010 issue of “Signs of the Times” features a picture of the current Brook Theater with the following caption: “When the Brook opened as a theater in 1949, it featured "Father Was a Fullback,” which starred Fred MacMurray. The theater features one of Tulsa’s few marquee signs that includes channel-block, double-tube letters; channel-script, sign-tube letters; and neon bandings. The letterbox contains glass panels. The Wally Werr Sign Co. manufacturered the originla sign. The theater building now houses a restaurant.

Here is yet another web page with photos of the Brook Theatre. The accompanying text says that the Brook served as the home of the American Theatre Company (Tulsa’s leading theatre group) for fifteen years before being converted into a restaurant. ATC’s web site says the Brook became the company’s second stage in 1979, so fifteen years would be just about right if the restaurant conversion took place in the mid-1990s.
