For full view of McAlester’s V Theater check out Cinema Tour web site. I’ve always wondered where they came up with such an odd name for this cinema.

The Cinema Tour photo shows it to be quite plain in appearance and I agree, strange name for a theatre.

On google maps at the top of this page, using the correct address of 224 E. Choctaw Ave., McAlester, OK 74501-5026 there is a fine image of the vacant V Theatre.
The Former Forum Theatre (now Marilynn’s Boutiquecan also be seen three doors West of the V.

Really frustrating how photos and information about the V are almost totally non existent. I do know for certain that the building was serving as the office for the local cable tv provider for a time until that entity, Communications Services, Inc, moved to a new location in 1986. The CATV operator previously was United Artists, so I suspect United Artists operated the theater years prior until they entered the cable tv business.
