Open ~1935-~1950? Can anyone verify the exact dates?

Need an address or crossroads, more info and photos.

The Columbia Theatre was in operation prior to 1919. An April 7, 1944, item in the Anadarko Daily News said that Ray Rector had sold the Columbia Theatre to Wesley and Maude Hodges. It said that Rector was only three months short of having operated the theater for 25 years, having bought it from Eddie Davis shortly after the first world war.

The Columbia Theatre was located on West Broadway, according to an item in the December 19, 1950, Daily News. The house had just been closed, but there were tentative plans to reopen it in January. I haven’t found anything confirming that it did reopen, though. The Redskin and Miler Theatres, both opened in 1947, were still in operation, but a fourth house, the Moore Theatre, had closed earlier in 1950.
