The horseshoe sign missmelbatoast made reference to says Billiards and Pool on it, so it wasn’t a movie theater at the time that photo was taken. That isn’t to say that it couldn’t have been converted to one later, though. Most early nickelodeons were in converted storefronts.

Not absolutely possitive but I suspect in this historic picture the Electric Palace Theatre is on the ground floor of the Missouri House. That horseshoe sign is hung upside down which is very bad luck. Perhaps that is why the Electric Palace failed to succeed. Below enter “Towns – Oklahoma City – Street Scenes – Broadway"
