NW First Street,
No one has favorited this theater yet
Opened around 1905 to showcase one reel moving pictures, the O.K. Theatre was located downtown Oklahoma City in the 100 block of West First Street.
Not even two years had passed before the West First Street O.K. Theatre packed everything up and moved (to a better location?) three blocks South down on California Street. Seems nickel tickets didn’t sell much better in that neighborhood either, because within one year the California Street O.K. Theatre had faded away.
I’ve seen antique picture postcards of both O.K. Theatres. They were typical nickelodeons of that early day period; gaudy facades, stud light signs, set back entry doors and box-office, with numerous display posters of current photoplays.
Surely a decent guess at auditorium capacity would have been around two hundred seats, give or take a few chairs.
