fawlsbane: The links to the Oklahoma Historical Society from this site have been broken for ages. Try clicking this link, and on the page you reach (if it works) select the link that says “Archives Catalog” and it will open the search page for the photo collection (and some other stuff.) There are over 1,000 results for a simple search on the word theatre (that spelling) and a smaller collection if you use the spelling theater. You can narrow it down by using the name of a city or of a specific theater instead.

Is Ray Bradley still around this site? I would love to see the interiors and vintage photos but the link he left is bad.

In 1939, the Crown was probably owned by Pete Crown. The March 4th issue of Boxoffice said that Pete Crown was closing his Crown Theatre in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, and switching his theaters in Pampa and Borger, Texas, from first run to subsequent run operations.

The Crown Theatre was owned in the Fifties by Video Independent Theatres.Inc. They had screens all over Texas and Oklahoma.

To view vintage exterior/interior images type in word ‘crown’,

You can have fun on this link by typing in words such as ‘drawing’, ‘architecture’, ‘theatre’, etc …
