Oklahoma City apparently had more than one theater called the Broadway, too. This item is from the January 21, 1922 issue of Exhibitors Herald:

“Oklahoma City, Okla. — The Broadway theatre, with a seating capacity of 400, has been opened here. Music is furnished by an electric orchestra.”
I’ve been unable to track down where this second Broadway Theatre was located or what became of it, so I’m putting the information here to avoid losing track of it.

The original Broadway Theatre was not listed in the 1914-1915 American Motion Picture Directory, nor was any other house at its address. The only theater the Directory listed on Broadway was the Star, at 217 N.
