PONCA CITY, OK — The Ponca Plaza Twin closed last month. This brings the former home of oil giant Conoco down to just four screens operated by Carmike, although the Poncan Theatre occasionally shows special event films. The Ponca Plaza Twin had a product sharing agreement with Carmike meaning it had essentially no competition. The theatre was refurbished within the last 7 years and operated by B&B.
“We would be delighted to work with a company or individual if they wished to purchase the theatre equipment and, with the blessing of the landlord, continue to operate this venue,” Bills said.

Maybe someone will buy it and run second run movies there.Bet there would be a market there.
I can’t imagine that this place didn’t do well. I haven’t lived there in a long time but when I did It was always busy. Again, it had NO competition. Little tiny shoe box hallways though.
Still good enough for second run? Austin.
I mean I honestly haven’t seen a movie there in at least 7 years. I know it got remodeled at some point. It has a great location! And people there aren’t even going to know the difference between 1st and 2nd run if there are only 4 other screen in town.
Yes,you are right about first and second run.Guess it is still closed.
