The New Crawford Theatre opened in 1910 on Topeka Street near Williams Street. The 800-seat theater was named after a late-19th century Crawford Theatre which had been a legitimate house. Later, the New Crawford Theatre became just the Crawford Theatre. It was later remodeled by the architectural firm Boller Brothers.

It has since been demolished, and a parking lot is on the site today. Any further information on this theater would be appreciated.

In that 1952 photo of the Crawford Theatre, does anyone know if that corner oil well was functional?
