This theatre is awesome! My wife and I visited it this past summer. We live in Stillwater, and sadly, we have only a Carmike Monsterplex in our town. Our classic theatre is intact; however, it’s now a furniture store. If you like classic, downtown movie theatres, check out the Rialto in Alva, the Orpheum in Okmulgee, or the Liberty in Carnegie. The coolest Drive-in left is in Guthrie. It’s called the Beacon. My wife, Cindy, and I have traveled all over Oklahoma, Kansas, eastern Colorado, and the Texas Panhandle researching old movie theatres. The Washita is one of the best!

Nice-looking building.

Web site listed in the introduction is gone. Is there a new web site?

Theater is definitely (re)opened since 2000. It is owned by the City of Cordell and recently hired a new operator with extensive experience— showing times are more extensive on weekends than before

Great picture. Would that beautiful exterior style be considered “Prairie Streamline”?
