I could not find when the Thomas Theatre opened, but it was a single screen theatre located on North Main Street and Broadway. The theatre closed in 2004 and has since been demolished.

No listing for ‘New’ as a prefix in F.D.Y. editions 1943 or 1950.

Okay Ken, the Temple is a done deal. The State theater is next. Do the FDYbooks show the State theater open after 1941?

The State Theatre is listed as open in 1943.

I was afraid of that Ken. As I mentioned above, the Kingfisher Daily Free Press shows the State theaters last show being April 26, 1941. Maybe I should put the State theater on hold. I also found a few other theaters that showed movies in Kingfisher. I could just type them up and send them to you and see if your info matches what I found. I hate to submit these theaters and then find out that the dates are wrong.

That was probably a bad idea. I’ll just submit them with the info that I have.

From Boxoffice magazine, May 1950. Perhaps Thomas should be removed as the aka.

KINGFISHER, OKLA-The Thomas Theater here has been purchased by Don Abernathy, a partner in Marcy, Inc. Possession was to be taken by the new owner April 30. Another local theater, known as the 89er, was bought last July by Marcy, Inc.

There is no 89er Theater listed for 1950. It had to be a later name for another theater.
