Rocket Theater 206 S. Rock Island Boulevard, El Reno, Ok...1940.

Vintage 1939 photos show that the Rocket Theatre (originally called the Criterion Theatre) was a medium size movie house that probably dated back to the early-1920’s, or maybe even as far back as the teens.

This movie house was operated by Paramount. View vintage interior/exterior images of this interesting cinema by typing in word “Rocket” or “Empress” (OHS mislabelled Rocket Theatre name) ,

Obviously the Rocket Theatre offered a complete bill, with news, cartoon, and a first run picture. Rocket Theatre (AKA- Criterion), 206 S. Rock Island Blvd, El Reno, OK>

206 Rock Island is now a parking lot. Listing should be changed to demolished.
