Washita Theatre

Built on the site of the Idle Hour Theatre which has its own page on Cinema Treasures. The Washita Theatre was operating by 1937. From 1941 through 1943, it was listed as (Closed). By 1950 it was open.

The theater reopened in around 2000, after extensive renovations and now shows first run movies with a THX-certified Dolby sound system.

This theatre is awesome! My wife and I visited it this past summer. We live in Stillwater, and sadly, we have only a Carmike Monsterplex in our town. Our classic theatre is intact; however, it’s now a furniture store. If you like classic, downtown movie theatres, check out the Rialto in Alva, the Orpheum in Okmulgee, or the Liberty in Carnegie. The coolest Drive-in left is in Guthrie. It’s called the Beacon. My wife, Cindy, and I have traveled all over Oklahoma, Kansas, eastern Colorado, and the Texas Panhandle researching old movie theatres. The Washita is one of the best!

Theater is definitely (re)opened since 2000. It is owned by the City of Cordell and recently hired a new operator with extensive experience— showing times are more extensive on weekends than before

Nice photo, Lost Memory. Thanks for posting it.

Great picture. Would that beautiful exterior style be considered “Prairie Streamline”?
