The Washita Theatre opened in 1941, replacing the original building that was destroyed by fire. It was a movie theatre for sixty years and closed in April 2001.
The Chickasha Community Theatre bought the Washita Theatre and completely renovated the historic building and transformed it into a playhouse type theatre. There ae 768 seats in this building at 511 Chickasha Avenue, Chickasha, Oklahoma. Just one block south of the main highway going through Chickasha.
If you are ever in South West Oklahoma it is worth your time to drive through Chickasha and see some of the beautiful historic buildings and other sites. Note the two buildings next to the theatre. We were in a hurry or I would have captured more of historic downtown Chickasha.
