I remember seeing the re-release of GONE WITH THE WIND in the early 50’s. A Burger King now stands in its place.

This theater opened in 1917. I’m not sure if he owned it since opening day, but T.W. Wisner (Thomas Wisner) was the owner at some point. In 1965 his wife sold the theater to a Thomas Lawrence.

The Oakland Theatre seated 595 people during the early 1930 and later was reduced to 518 in later listings of the theatre seating listings.
