I grew up going to this theatre, when it was only $1 to get in….People drive from all over the state. For those unsatisfied with the upgrade need to remember, and splurge for what this place is REALLY famous for…SHOWDOGS!

I drove down from OKC to see KING KONG at this theatre in December 2005 and found it underwhelming. The only thing that felt particularly vintage about it was the neon sign out front.

The older auditorium inside looks virtually the same as the two newer theatres that were added some years ago. There’s very little sense of a vintage cinema here. It definitely was not worth the lengthy drive from Oklahoma City.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s perfectly serviceable as a functioning theatre, but there’s little feeling of the old days here, the neon sign aside.

For a real vintage moviegoing experience, I recommend the Poncan in Ponca City. Now THERE’S a movie palace.

This is one of Oklahoma’s few remaining, independent gems! Great theatre.

Now this one’s a success story!

Great restoration work! This is my father’s home town theatre, but I hadn’t been to it in years until recently. Wow! Impressive!
