The Cameo had a “reverse” cinema layout.

Oklahoma Historical Society remarks that Griffith Bros acquired the Cameo Theatre in 1940, and then replaced it with the Rita Theatre.
1934 images reveal a Spanish Mission exterior (bet those entrance doors were composed of green & orange glass) that looked as if it probably dated way back to nickelodeon times. Tht original generic “movie house” auditorium wasn’t much to look at, but it sure was better than the cheap Griffith replacement.
On the OHS web site, the Cameo auditorium is mistakenly shown again as that of the Circle Theater.
Most Tulsa citizens felt no loss after the Rita Theatre burned.
