My father went to this theater as a child. He was born in 1928. I have a wooden ruler from the theater. The Saturday matinee printed in the ruler is episode 1 of “King of the Royal Mounted”. Also, “When the Dalton’s Rode”.

TC, Can you adjust the seating from 998 to 1200?

Nice job of combing the two listings!

The Oxford Theater opened on February 24, 1928 showcasing “Dress Parade” with William Boyd and Bessie Love, a newsreel, and an “Our Gang” comedy. The 1200 seat theater, refered to as one of the foremost playhouses in the East, was built in the Spanish style and featured a full stage and Wurlitzer organ specially adapted for silent motion pictures. The theater was demolished in October, 1964 and at the time was part of the Stanley Warner chain.

Do you have any photos of the theatre?

My Mom went to this theater as a young girl. At the time they would give photos of the stars to everyone as well as a listing of who was in the movie they were about to see. She kept all of them and placed them into a scrapbook which I still have. She told me today that she used to pay 5 cents to see the movie and really missed it when she had to move away.

Unfortunetely, the Oxford was demolished years ago to provide for a bank parking lot.

The Oxford was a wonderful little theatre and I think somewhat decorative, although it was always dark!

I do remember a center ceiling dome and wall sconces. There were two center aisles as well as side aisles.

The theatre always seemed full; the parking lot always seems empty.
