Tower Theater

Drumright, OK

Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

A true treasure of Art Deco architecture was the Tower Theater. Exterior and interior decorative detail were well balanced, without losing that special “promise” only Art Deco could deliver.

Please tell us anything you remember about the Tower.

Want to know what the OKC Villa Theatre originally looked like? Then look at this cinema, for the Tower was sister to the Villa (a balcony enabled the Villa to have larger seating capacity).

The original Tower Theatre in Drumright, opened in 1937 by the Griffith Amusement Company, burned on December 11, 1944. Rebuilding was delayed due to wartime shortages. Boxoffice Magazine of March 30, 1946, announced that the opening of the rebuilt Tower was scheduled for April 12 that year.
