Temple Cinema ... Mangum Oklahoma

1937 and 1965 photos reveal that the Temple Cinema had formerly been a (circa 1920) Masonic Temple. An attractive neon marquee letterboard was added over the main entrance when this building converted over to movie use. A quasi-modernist flair permeated the fancy auditorium, and in an earlier era a finely draped stage most certainly hosted vaudeville acts and stage productions.

Should you have more detail about this cinema please jot it down here.

Several vintage photos of the old Temple Theatre can be seen here. Not too sure about the attempted Art Deco redo,
