The Jan. 25, 1963 edition of the Southeast Missourian announces the movie will begin at the Rialto Theatre.
"The filmization of Rodgers and Hammerstein's immortal musical classic OKLAHOMA!, originally presented on a roadshow, two-a-day basis, will begin its continuous performance, popular-price run in CinemaScope and color by Technicolor beginning Sunday at the Rialto Theatre."
