General Information:

The Oakman Theatre opened December 24 1919, designed by C. Howard Crane and seating over 1,200. It was located on Woodrow Wilson Street near Leslie Street. The theatre closed in 1937, but reopened for a short time in the 1950’s again before closing permanently as a movie house. The building was used as a church, who moved out in around 2009.

According to my sources, the Powell and Sons Landscaping building is the old theater.
