Washita Theater


category : Historic Theatres
Washita Theater The grand tradition of the Washita Theater has returned to the City of New Cordell. Over 50 years has passed since the days of the Saturday matinee, the preview, and the news reel ... and now the art deco splendor of the Washita will be home to a new generation of movies and movie-goers!

The City of New Cordell purchased the Washita Theater several years ago in an effort to save Cordell's last picture show. Development plans were soon underway and the building was stabilized structurally with the addition of a new roof.
