Long Description:
This building at 816 Manvel was built in 1926 as the H & S Theater and still operates as such today. It is a one-screen theater with 534 seats, and is open 7 days a week.

This little theatre is located in downtown in Chandler, OK. It opened on September 16, 1926 and hasn't been messed with much. Instead of a marquee, it has a portico-style face complete with two columns on either side of the doorway.

Designed by architect A.C. Davis & Sons of Shawnee, OK, it was constructed by the Hill Co. of Ada, OK. One hundred and thirty three thousand bricks were used in construction., the interior by Wirf Paint & Glass Company of Shawnee OK, drapes fashioned by Beaumont Studios, New York.

The owner is currently restoring the ceiling in the auditorium having been damaged by years of moisture. This theatre shows first-run movies and is open nightly. [Source: Cinematreasures.org]
