The Wigwam must have been in operation prior to 1921, when the March 18 issue of The Film Daily published the following item:

“To Open Nickel Show

“Muskogee, Okla. — Motion pictures at five and ten cents admission are promised by O. G. Bradshaw, who recently closed a three year lease on the Wigwam. The theater will be remodeled before opening under his management.”

It appears that there was more than one Wigwam Theatre operating in Muskogee in 1911. This was published in the Muskogee Daily Phoenix on Saturday, July 22, 1911.

A New Wigwam.

“Wigwam No. 4, the new tent in the growing family, will throw open its doors for the first time Sunday. The new theater is located in the Arch Wright building at Main and Broadway and has a seating capacity of about four hundred. Both vaudeville and pictures will be shown and the house will be open from noon until eleven o'clock at night”.

The Wigwam Theatre listed here was already operating in 1911 and was Wigwam No. 1. This theatre was located in the “300” block of Court Street. An ad for a curtain store with an address of 316 Court Street, states that the store is two doors west of Wigwam No. 1.
