A quicker route to see 1942 interior and exterior shots is to go to above link and type in “Tulsa Plaza Theatre”, under match all words.
Oklahoma State Historical Society now list the Plaza as torn down.

From a 2005 calendar ‘TULSA, SEE YA AT THE MOVIES’, ALHAMBRA Theater opened 1924, and closed 1928. Reopend in 1930 with a complete renovation and new name- PLAZA and continued as a movie house until at least 1949. After that it operated as Tulsa Little Theater, a live stage show venue.
