H & S Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This little theatre is located downtown in Chandler, OK. It opened on September 16, 1926 and hasn’t been messed with much. Instead of a marquee, it has a portico-style face complete with two columns on either side of the doorway.

Designed by architect A.C. Davis & Sons of Shawnee, OK, it was constructed by the Hill Co. of Ada, OK. One hundred and thirty three thousand bricks were used in construction., the interior by Wirf Paint & Glass Company of Shawnee OK, drapes fashioned by Beaumont Studios, New York.

This theatre shows first-run movies and is open nightly.

I was in Chandler a few days ago. The museum across the street has a few of the original seats with the H&S logo on the side. Looking at some of the exhibits, it appears that the Odeon Theater was in business close to the H&S until 1955. However, there was some confusion amongst the locals as to whether the Odeon was next door to the H&S or down the street.

This c1940 photo of Chandler’s Odeon serves to illustrate how humble some small town theatres could be.

It was built in 1926, and today’s admission price is just $4.00. It was closed when I passed through town so can’t add any interesting interior descriptions. Judging from lobby posters it looks as if its a strictly P.G. house. Too bad, the towns folk will miss most of the better films.
