The Coleman Theatre is a historic performance venue and movie house located on historic U.S. Route 66 in Miami, Oklahoma. Built in 1929 for George Coleman, a local mining magnate, it has a distinctive Spanish Colonial Revival exterior, and an elaborate Louis XV interior. It was billed as the most elaborate theater between Dallas and Kansas City at the time of its opening, and played host to vaudeville acts, musical groups, and movies.For Coleman Theater and beyond, use our Miami trip planner to get the most from your Miami vacation.

It’s a must see and a must feel. The atmosphere is gorgeous and the volunteers have done a amazing job restoring the place. They told me all donations are used for the theatre and your money is a part of their restoration. Sound and lightning was good along with the feel of the theatre. Such a great time to visit the old Coleman Theatre. Highly recommended.
My wife and I live in Alabama but come to Miami, Oklahoma occasionally to visit family. We took the Coleman Theater tour yesterday as we have done several times in the past. Today we returned and adopted a theater seat in memory of my mother who graduated in the Miami High School class of 1940. She went to the Coleman as a kid so today's donation was to honor her legacy. If you are ever in Miami you have got to stop and see this historic landmark which is located on famous Route 66. It will be time well spent. I guarantee it!
