Closed, Crown Theater, Collinsville, Oklahoma

When we first moved to Collinsville in 1977, this theater was going strong. This was the theater I first saw movies like the first Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T.,,,,heck, even Smokey and the Bandit. It finally closed around 2000 after years of declining attendence. Someone bought it and tried to run it for a couple of years or so, including I believe a fairly successful run of "The Passion of the Christ", but it's hard to compete with the mulitplex down in Owasso, about ten miles away, and it's sat unused now for a good year or so.


Update 1/20/07: The marquee is now gone and the building is being used as a church.
