Stovall Theatre Remains Vacant

posted by Richard Beattie on July 21, 2005 at 7:29 am

SAYRE, OK — I spoke with Main Street in Sayre today and the Stovall Theatre remains vacant. There is grant money to purchase the theatre and to repait the roof.

There are many theatres in the west that I would like to help restore. Does anyone know of a group that saves old theatres?

They did it with Light houses – why not our entertainment venues. If anyone would like to contact me on such an organization- and or starting one, I would appreciate it.
