Tulsa’s Continental Theatre was sister house to the Continental in Oklahoma City. Both houses specialized in reserved seat, road show engagements.
This house opened in 1967, and was decorated in a black/white/chrome International flair. The continental style, 1,000 seat auditorium contained overstuffed rocking chair theatre seats, a curved, mammoth sized screen, and lush drapery.
Barton Theatres sunk a great sum of money into building both Continental Theatres. Unfortunately, it was at this same time that twin cinemas were coming into vogue, and road show attractions were falling out of favor with the movie-going public. Thus, niether cinema ever attained financial success.
After sitting vacant a number of years, the Tulsa Continental Theatre was razed in 1981.
