In 1923, the Capital-Democrat advertised the showing of “Forbidden City”, a 1918 silent film, at the Wewoka.

In 1963, Wewoka was also the site of the Pow-Wow Drive-In, a Video Independent operation.

I found 3 not-yet-identified theatres on fire insurance maps: 127 W. Main (1st St), 115 W. Main (1st St) and one at the SW corner of Main & Wewoka inside the Okmulgee Hotel. All three are demolished. The theatre at 127 W. Main was quite a bit larger than the others and was present until at least 1925 (but listed vacant by 1930). The 115 W. Main theatre lasted until at least 1930.
