The Crown Theater showed family friendly movies, as well as functioning as a meeting hall, venue for theatrical performances, and church on Sunday mornings.

In 2014 it became Herron’s Crown Opry Theater.

I called the current owners. This is still a movie theatre, too. And they are restoring it little by little.

The number’s (918) 371-2101. These downtown movie theatres have much better atmosphere than the modern “monster-plexes.” My wife and I have been all over Oklahoma, Eastern Colorado, Kansas, & Northern Texas looking at these “mom & pop-owned” theatres. Take the time to seek them out and talk to their owners. That’s right! You can actually talk to their owners, and they all have stories that they are more than willing to tell. We’ve been given tours, told ghost stories, and been made very welcome. You don’t get that in the stadium seated, individual closet-sized, dirty “monster-plexes.” Going to a movie is about the experience as much as the movie itself. These theatres are living histories of their towns. Some are grand, some are plain, but they all reside in the heart of their respective cities and towns. They are Americana. My wife and I got fed up with the cold, impersonal “monster-plexes”, so on days off, we drive to and investigate little, downtown theatres. It’s a rewarding hobby to say the least.

Editions of the Film Daily Yearbook that I have for years 1941 through 1950 only have one theatre listed for Collinsville, OK. and it is named the Nusho Theatre with a seating capacity given as 325. Would this be what is now the current Crown Theatre?

The owners have had to close the Crown for this summer. Their answering machine message says “due to an illness.” Hopefully, they’re doing better now, and the Crown Theatre will reopen sometime soon. Speaking to them, they seem like very nice people. Good luck and get well soon.

The Christian pop/rock group 1FIFTY3 has recently “taken over” the Crown and transformed it into the venue for their new Saturday night praise and worship service “ALIVE! at the Crown”. The service is geared toward young adults, teens, children, and anyone else who loves new and exciting praise and worship music. The service is led by 1FIFTY3’s lead singer Kendall Overton and lead guitarist Ryan Floyd. Overton and Floyd are accompanied by a house band of extremely talented musicians. 1FIFTY3 tries to play at the Crown as often as possible when the recording of their new CD and other concert dates don’t interfere. The service is every Saturday night at 6:00pm and is free to the public.

The function should be changed to church. Here is another photo:
