After 30 Years – Movies Return to Tower Theatre

Tower Theatre Cinema Screens “2001: Space Odyssey” on November 13

Oklahoma City, OK – (November 8, 2017) – After decades of darkness, the movie screen at Tower Theatre will come to life with Stanley Kubrick’s cult classic “2001: Space Odyssey” on Monday, November 13 – continuing the long standing history of showing quality films in one of the most iconic theaters to ever grace Oklahoma City.

“I spent a lot of time considering what films we would show first at the Tower Theatre,” says Stephen Tyler, Operating Partner. “I wanted to respect and honor the history of the Tower. By picking films that resonate with the times past, present and future.”

Tower Theatre Cinema debuts by screening “2001: Space Odyssey” on Monday, November 13, “The Fifth Element” on Tuesday, November 14, and Louis C.K.’s new independent film, “I Love You, Daddy,” on December 1. Movies shown at Tower Theatre Cinema will be a mix of classics, independent films and fan favorites. Movie-goers will enjoy films from the original Tower Theatre seats, completely renovated and reupholstered. Theatre snacks include popcorn, candy and a full bar.

“Tower Theatre has a rich history we wanted to include in the movie-going experience,” says Tyler. “We nod to the past with architectural details and original seats while embracing modern technology with the installation of our 4k projection system.”

Extensive cinema renovations included the installation of a state-of-the art, 4k digital projection system, surround sound and 25-foot ceiling recessed screen. In addition, Tower Theatre has future plans to restore the 1954 Philips Norelco DP70 projector, one of only 1500 ever produced, that played films at Tower Theatre from 1963 until 1986.
