“WOW!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

I spent a lot of my childhood in this Theater; you will not find a better theater anywhere. It is as stylish as any place in the country with an old world gothic flair. This theater compares to the Corn Palace in South Dakota because it is as unique in its design. America quit using this quality of design back in the 30’s and early 40’s in today’s market this building would cost in the millions of dollars to replace. Defiantly worth checking out with its huge balcony and Opera Seating on the outer walls, what more can I say IT IS A MUST SEE!

“Perfectly restored theatre...amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

Stopped by on route 66, but wasn't really prepared for the surprise...just an amazing story of the theatre built by the local mining tycoon for his wife, and such friendly volunteer workers showed us around. Do stop off.

“Unexpected opulance.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

This beautifully restored Spanish Revival style theatre comes as a wonderful surprise in small town Miami, Oklahoma. The exterior is all gables and arched windows while the interior boasts 1920's splendor with gaudy Louis XV furniture, ornate chandeliers and gilded statues.
