Another planned city was built on the outskirts of Oklahoma City during World War II. The Central Business District of Midwest City was ATKINSON PLAZA, a moderne-style strip center. One of its original tenants was the Skytrain Theatre. 


The Skytrain was in business for nearly 30 years. It was eventually demolished, along with the rest of the historic mid-century shopping facility, in 2003.



In this 1947 snapshot, "Good News", another MetroGoldwynMayer production, is the feature Skytrain presentation. The film starred June Alyson and Peter Lawford.
