Open ~1935-~1955? Can anyone verify the exact dates?

Need an address.

Hollis had three hardtop theatres; Cozy, LaVista, and Watt. The white crewcab pick-up truck is parked in front of one of them, but don’t know which cinema it is.

The March-April, 1986, issue of Oklahoma Today has an article about movies and theaters in Oklahoma. It mentions Hollis only briefly, saying that a house called the Empress Theatre was popular during the early 1920s. That might have been an earlier name of the Watt Theatre or the LaVista (the Cozy didn’t open until 1928.)

A PDF of the magazine is available here.
