Redskin Theater

Redskin Theater

The Redskin Theater opened on February 12, 1947.  It is still in operation at 221 W. Broadway.  

Redskin Box OfficeAs you approach the theater, arrows on the tiles direct you to the box office.  Once inside there is a concession stand and two theaters.  This is one of the few changes from the original design.  The theater was built as one large theater, fully equipped with a balcony and a "cry room" upstairs near the projection booth.    This change notwithstanding, the original artwork inside is still lovely to see.  

The lobby is adorned with lovely paintings by Maurice Bedoka, a member of the Caddo Nation and cofounder of The American Indian Exposition, a non-profit organization incorporated in 1935.  The walls of the theater are a gallery for the murals of Cheyenne artist, Archie Blackowl.  Blackowl is quoted as saying, "Leave a mark.  Put something down so that when the young people see it they will understand".
