Westland Theatre, Elk City OK 1994

Opened on May 18, 1950, the 800-seat Westland Theatre is located on S. Main Street at E. 5th Street. It was a large two story theatre done in red brick with a center panel down the middle above the marquee in a cream color. Pure Art Deco style in design on the exterior.

The theatre had a large V shaped marquee with a large vertical with the theatre name in red and white. The marquee is still in use and the vertical is still there. The building now houses the Merrifield Office Supply Store.

That’s the place. I recommend the barber shop close to the theater if you’re ever in Elk City. Fine haircut I got there.

My Dad was the manager of the Westland Theatre from about 1953 to 1958 when the company branched out to catv. Among all the old movie theater pictures I found a small box of color slides of the Westland. Some are color versions of the ones in raybradley’s link.

An Elk City history book, found at the Old Town Museum there, said that the Westland Theatre was under construction in late 1949 and was owned by Griffith Theatre and Amusement Company, which also owned the Elk Theatre and the (also under construction) 66 Drive-In Theatre.

The June 10, 1950 issue of BoxOffice noted that, “The Westland Theatre, an 800-seater, was opened at Elk City” in May.
