Oklah Theatre

Bartlesville is world headquarters to Phillips 66 Petroleum Corporation, so theaters here have always benefitted from a prosperous local economy.

Above 1902 Oklah Theater photo should be credited to pioneer photographer Frank Griggs.

This theatre opened 1902 as Oklah, then became known as Odeon, and finally Liberty. To see vintage photographs see ODEON and/or LIBERTY listings.

The Oklah Opera House was built in 1907 and launched September 25, 1907 opening with the play, “Miss Pochahontas.” Its address was was 105-107 West Third Street. It switched to films and became the Oklah Theatre. A big hit was a 1916 presentation of “Birth of a Nation.” It also had a big audience paying tribute to the late President Teddy Roosevelt at a memorial service in 1919. The Arrow Theatre supplanted the longtime opera house.
