As noted above, During the early day of the Twentieth Century Picher was the largest town in the Northeast corner of Oklahma. Due to underground toxic water tables the entire town of Picher has now been condemned and is slated for complete demolition by the end of 2009.

1922 Picher population was listed as 9,676, just about the right amount to be able to support four movie houses. In those days Hollywood and New York were churning out a dozen new feature films weekly.
