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

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 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.

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 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.

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

The Crown Theater in Collinsville, OK has been open again for several years. My wife and I have been working with the past owners and are in the process of acquiring the theater business and to lease the building until we can afford to purchase the building. Our plan is to restore the theater as much as possible beginning with the marquee.

The theater was originally done in an art deco style and still has the original entryway and restroom tiles. The exterior of the building was originally done intiles as well and we believe the majority of the original tiles are intact beneath the brick facade that was added in the early 70’s. we will find out after we actually own the building.

The Crown seats 350+ and is used primarily for family friendly movies, a meeting hall, theatrical performances, and houses a church on Sunday mornings.
