Located off historic Route 66 in northeast Oklahoma, the Coleman Theatre is an iconic piece of Oklahoma history. From the day it opened in 1929, this legendary theater has been entertaining audiences with impressive theatrical productions and structural beauty.

The Miami landmark began as a Vaudeville movie theater built by George L. Coleman Sr. The exterior architecture is Spanish Mission Revival, and terra cotta gargoyles and other hand-carved figures adorn the building facade. The elegant Louis XV interior includes gold leaf trim, silk damask panels, stained glass panels, a carved mahogany staircase, a 2,000 pound chandelier, decorative plaster moldings and railings.

The beautiful theater was donated to the city of Miami by the Coleman family in 1989. Over the years the Coleman Theatre has been renovated and is every bit as beautiful as it was in 1929. A highlight of the building is the original pipe organ, called "The Mighty Wurlitzer," which continues to fill the beautiful theater with terrific music today. The theater presents a variety of exceptional entertainment year-round. Entertainment at the theater includes ballet, opera, silent films, jazz and dance bands as well as community pageants and events.
