In 1909 Keith-Albee opened Oklahoma City’s Metropolitan Theatre to showcase Orpheum vaudeville and touring stock.
Pre-opening news announcements mentioned that the Metropolitan Theatre was in Federal (Colonial) Revival Style, designed by architect and producer Frank William Sanger, and went on to say that Sanger had also had the Empire Theatre and Broadway Theatre in New York City’s Times Square district.
On June 17, 1917 the name had changed to Palace Theatre. In the late-1920’s the bill changed to combo talkies/vaudeville, with an updated name of RKO Palace Theatre.
Union stage labor conflicts forced RKO to “temporarily” shut down the Palace Theatre in late-1937. It never reopened.
