4 Outstanding Movie Theaters in Oklahoma City

November 14, 2016

Movie_Theatres_-OKC.jpgAre you excited to check out the next big release? Whether you’re interested in the latest installment in the Marvel Universe, or want to head back into the world of Harry Potter with Fantastic Beasts, you’ll find several theaters in the Oklahoma City area that can meet your needs. Check out these locations for your next movie-going experience:

1. The Chief Drive-In Theatre
S of Chickasha, OK on Hwy 81
36 minutes from Springs at May Lakes

For a truly distinctive movie experience, you can’t do better than The Chief. This drive-in theater is open year-round on Fridays and Saturdays, and is one of the last standing drive-in theaters in the state. To keep it running, it’s important to follow the house rules. The most important of these is “no outside food or drinks,” as concessions are the theater’s main source of profits. You’ll find a wide selection of snacks and meals including popcorn, candy, soda, corn dogs, hamburgers, pizza, chicken strips, pretzels, and more.

To make the experience enjoyable for everyone, you must turn off your headlights and stay for the entirety of the film. If you have to leave, you’ll be required to pay another admission to return, as in-and-out guests are disruptive to movie watchers. The Chief offers a fun and memorable movie experience for visitors of all ages.

2. Moore Warren Theater
1000 Telephone Rd, Moore
16 minutes from Springs at May Lakes

The Moore Warren Theater features several outstanding amenities including an IMAX theater, Director’s Suite, and Screening Room auditoriums. Guests 21 and older can enjoy the elegant balcony and Oscar’s Lounge. If you want a bite before or after the show, the on-site Moore Warren Diner offers a fun 1940s atmosphere, complete with a soda fountain. Snag a seat for the much-anticipated film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, coming Friday, November 18.

3. Winchester Drive-In Theater
6930 S Western Ave, Oklahoma City
9 minutes from Springs at May Lakes

The Winchester Drive-In is the oldest theater of its kind in Oklahoma City and everyone loves the low price ($7 for adults and $3 for children ages 3-10) for two great movies. Movies are announced on their main website and Facebook page several days in advance, so you have time to decide if the movies are appealing.  Designated parking for trucks, vans, and SUVs makes it easy for everyone to get a good spot with a view of the screen. The concession stand offers plenty of treats, but it’s important to note it’s a cash-only operation.

4. Bricktown 16
150 E Reno Ave, Oklahoma City
21 minutes from Springs at Memorial

Bricktown 16 is the only Harkins Theatre in the state, and is a perfect choice for families with children thanks to the Harkins PlayCenter. You can drop off children ages 3 to 8 at the PlayCenter during the film, where they’ll enjoy supervised toys, games, and stories. For the ultimate in movie-going experiences, get tickets for the Cine Capri, a theater that has a screen that’s more than 70 feet wide and plush reclining seats.
