Whiteway Theatre / Mar Theatre

The Whiteway Theatre opened in Marlow, Oklahoma about 1929. In 1946 the Hurshel and Vincie McKelroy bought the Alamo Theatre and the Whiteway Theatre in Marlow. I think this is the name change from Whiteway to Mar (short for Marlow). A city directory has O. L. Smith as the owner in 1954. He will own the Mar Theatre and the Alamo Theatre. The Mar Theatre closed about 1956.

Looked at some old Marlow Reviews today. Noticed that name change from Whiteway to Mar did not occur until the fall of 1949. I thought earlier that the McKelroy’s changed the name but now I think the Smith’s changed the name perhaps when he bought the two theatres.
