Artist's Description

The grand historic old Coleman Theatre was built in 1929 on Route 66 in Miami, Oklahoma. Built as a vaudeville theater and movie palace, it hosted appearances by many early stars including Will Rogers, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. It was donated to the city of Miami by the Coleman family in 1989 and has been restored to its original style including the return of the “Mighty Wurlitzer” pipe organ. Today, the theatre hosts ballets, theatre performances, receptions, conferences and silent movies.

Unfortunately, the theatre is not open on Mondays – the day we visited Miami and we were unable to see at first hand the grand style of the interior. It certainly is a surprise to see in a small old-style town in country Oklahoma.
