I haven’t had much luck finding stuff that has gone missing from earlier comments due to linkrot, but at least I found this page from Boxoffice of March 1, 1947, featuring a couple of interior photos of the Will Rogers Theatre at the bottom of the page.

The Will Rogers was part of an article in Boxoffice back in March 1947:

This 1947 photo comes courtesy of LIFE. Though listed as being in Clarmore, it is actually the OKC Will Rogers Theater.

Best vintage photos of the Will Rogers facade, lobby, and auditorium can be seen on Oklahoma Historical Society pages. Type in word “theatre”, then search.

This was a great place to work. Another really cool place was the Cinema 70 Drive-In. It was the only 70mm drive-in in OKC!

I tried to send you an email but I had to register first. I wasnt sure if the first one went so her it goes again. :–). I am in desperate need of your help. I am getting married in May 2005 and would like some information on pricing if you rent your facility for this kind of event. Ive checked into several wedding locations and the prices were extrememly high. My fbest friend works across the street from your theatre and told me to check with you. It is for 125-150 people. Hopefully you can give me some information and save me from walking into the courthouse to get married so i wount be in debt. ha. Thank you for your help and have a wonderful Day!
