Mid-West Theatre

Drumright, OK

Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Drumright is surrounded by rolling, wooded hills and picturesque horse ranches, so it was understandable that the Mid-West Theatre facade would be designed in long, low, ranch styling. Neon trimming enlivened the entire ediface, with a stylized neon wagon wheel centerpiece.

Frankly, the interior was a departure from the exterior appearance, for it looked as if it might have been decorated by a local designer who had heard of Art-Deco, but had never actually seen an example of it. Auditorium walls were composed of frantic Art-Deco chevrons, bold stripes, zig-zag trim, and drapery that didn’t really belong together.

Do you have memories of the Mid-West?

Colorfull neon trim is long gone, and the marquee too, but the Mid-West Theatre is still in very good shape,
