I would love to see that happen.

There is still a glimpse of hope for this place. The owner wants to renovate it to the original art and deco style. Historical / arts grants, partnerships, and funds are being researched at this time but a structural report and funding will eventually determine her fate.

My grandfather was Lewis Long. My mother, Billie Long, grew up in Keyes and lived above the theatre most of her life. I just got back from a visit to Keyes. It was very sad to see the state of the theatre. From what I understand they are going to tear it down.

The Long Theatre was the first movie house in Keyes, which, according to a May 10, 1947, Boxoffice item, was a town of 227 when the 250-seat theater opened that month. Lewis W. Long was the owner of the house. The Long Theatre was still in operation at least as late as 1964, when it was mentioned in the February 3 issue of Boxoffice.

Hollywood stars Vera Miles and Jack Hoxie both lived in Cimarron County, Oklahoma. Below is a screen bio for cowboy actor Hoxie.
