State Theater

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Since Sapulpa is a suburb of Tulsa the State Theater held a big city look. Designed in conservative Gothic architecture the State Theater was quite destinctive in appearance.

Religeous picture showing was another one of gimmick producer Kroger Babb’s cheapies, who usually pitched sexploitation stinkers!

Miss Melba:
After looking at the OHS photos, I honestly don’t beleive your posting are images of the State in Sapulpa. There is no resemblance.

The Tulsa Library pictures linked by Miss Melba Toast are of the Yale Theater in downtown Sapulpa.

The first street view is of the Yale, and it doesn’t look much like the historic photos as it appears the top of the building was rebuilt.
The second street view is off a bit. Its the building to the left of the white pickup. Red brick, strong white trim and a glass display area. That’s the State. Compare to the photos on the okhistory.cuadra.com website.
I’d link the photos on my site, but I had a database error and poof! I’ll get those photos back up as soon as possible.
