At this writing the only information available on the Midwest Theater is a 1936 photo showing a tapestry draped, one aisle, “shooting gallery” auditorium.

In 1944, the Midwest was one of four Chickasha houses being operated by Griffith Southwest Theatres.The others were the Washita, Rialto, and Ritz, as noted in the April 15 issue of Showmen’s Trade Review.

Although I haven’t been able to pin it down for certain, there is a possibility that Midwest was a new name for an earlier house called variously the Kozy or Cozy, which vanished from the listings some time before the Midwest appeared.

I’m curious if this building has been torn down and a new building rebuilt in its place since 2016? It looks like a brand new building. However, I know that remodeling can have some amazing effects. You will have to google this one out and check it out for yourself.
