I used to go to the theater in Konawa back in 1958. I saw the original black and white “The Fly” there on a Friday night in 1958. The theater had a stage in front where they had activities just before the movie, I believe… or after. Is this the theater I’m thinking of on Broadway

The April 18, 1966 issue of BoxOffice reported that among the exhibitors visiting the Oklahoma City film row were “Mr. and Mrs. Joe Harris, Rex Theatre, Konawa, who reported the house had been closed and his equipment was for sale, since he has other interests to take care of and does not have time to operate the theatre.”
