I wrote the director, advising against the dome screen, based on my experience with the Ft.Worth Science dome, but this is much better viewing. Unfortunately, the film system is not IMAX compatible, so the only have about a tenth of the movies to choose from. so they have limited film rotation. OOPS!

shopping center is about half demolished, in process, we’ve been told a WalMart Neighborhood Market will go in there. theatre was in the NW corner of the mall. 2 screens or 4, I’m not sure. I can’t remember if I’d been there more than once, maybe twice.

I believe all screens now have Digital projection, and image quality is excellent, noticeable improvement over film. also now including one IMAX theater, for the very best experience. may not be as fancy as the Warren (in south OKC) but the movie experience is just as good.

during the 80’s I was in the electronics business, and happened to befriend Ken Williams, who was the Manager/Projectionist of this wonderful theater. I was able to visit the projection room and viewed a number of films there. The Right Stuff, Streets of Fire and Legend(Tom Cruise) come to mind.

Sound Warehouse was the big music chain in the area in late 20th century. I purchased many records and CD’s at this location before they closed. I don’t ever remember a Tower records here or anywhere else in OKC. the name changed at some point to Wherehouse before going out of business,other locations now owned by FYE. picture above is current occupant, Blue Seven.
