The Poncan was operated by Video Independent Theaters of Oklahoma City in the early sixties.

Terry Fator, World Class Ventriliquist, performed at the Poncan May 6th, 2008 to a sold out house of 800. They got Fire Marshal permission and brought in another 36 seats. It was the first time the Theatre had been sold out in anyones memory.
It was a magical night!
The crowd sure woke up some ghosts that night!
It was louder and more fun than his performance in Dallas that had an audience of 2,000!
Here are some local news articles about the event.

It’s a beautiful theatre, but it breaks my heart that they don’t show movies any more. I used to make the trip from Oklahoma City when I came home for the holidays, just to experience this lovely theatre. It’s a darn shame.
