The building at the current location looks like a typical seventies retail strip. Not sure if the theater is still around.

The Murray Theatre at Lawton, Oklahoma, was mentioned in the August 17, 1918 issue of The Moving Picture World. The house must have been in operation for several years by then, as the chapter “The Devil Worshipers” of the serial Exploits of Elaine, in the ad for the Murray on our photo page, was released on December 28, 1914.
