These art deco styled buildings were the distribution point for films from the movie studios in Hollywood. If you had a movie theater in Oklahoma, your films came from the Movie District.

All the studios had a building with their name on it. MGM, Universal, Paramont and all the others proudly hawked their films from this block of  structures.

This jewel is across the street. Saved by an entrepenuer who recognized the beauty and significance of one of OKC's early buildings.

In the middle of recieving a new paint job to bring it back to its original color, is this fine art deco gem!

Kickn' Along the Sidewalks


  1. i'm loving the first couple of shots of the buildings with the black accents. really striking! the brightness on the last one is, well, bright... :)

  2. I love that style of architecture.

  3. What a gem indeed! I really like the new paint on the building - Great shots. Happy New Year Parker! =)

  4. I like the exposure on these photos, and the previous post on this location. I'm glad these early buildings preserved in good condition like that.

  5. Nice shots and good history. I lived in OKC for 30 years and I didn't even know there was a movie district!

  6. Great find Parker. Nice to see these buildings being preserved!
