In 1913, Coalgate was served by its newly-opened O.B.O. Theatre in the O.B.O. building, the existing Majestic Theatre, and in its first of two or three homes, the Wigwam Theatre which opened in August of 1913. The Wigwam would add Western Electric sound in 1931 to remain viable. However, it closed for a period during the Depression. It likely moved to new digs and continued all the way until closing on June 29, 1959 with “The Ten Commandments” at the end of a leasing period. It did not reopen.
