The El Reno Opera House opened April 1, 1893 with a live play. At its 15-year mark, the El Reno Opera House turned to a mixture of live events and motion pictures generally going by its new moniker of as the El Reno Theatre in 1907. The venue was destroyed by fire on December 26, 1918 and rebuilt following its final event which was a live play titled, “Freckles.” The “new” El Reno Theatre relaunched in its new building on May 12, 1919 with motion pictures and Harold Lockwood in “Shadows of Suspicion" and has its own Cinema Treasure page.

An Oct 1, 1920 article in The Porum Journal mentions that “work is being rushed” to complete a new opera house, and that the El Reno Theatre was destroyed by fire in 1919. Possibly the existing building is #2.
