I was working for UA Theatres corporate hq in the 1990s – don’t think this was a United Artists location. I attended a few shows here in the early 90s and never got in free!

Carolina-based Litchfield Theatres Circuit, formerly Fairlane Litchfield, decided that the time was right to move into the Oklahoma City market in the 1980s. And the move was a good one because the town was overbuilt with aging twin and four-plexes without a true, modern destination theatre. Litchfield began in Edmond with the $1.4 million, 1,548 seat Kickingbird Cinema 6. The Windsor Hills was built behind the, then, 28-year old Windsor Hills Center because who needs to actually see the theatre from the road?
Litchfield’s Windsor Hills Cinema 10 represented a more aggressive attempt to break into the next generation of multiplexes and was designed by Hiller & Hiller of South Carolina. The Windsor Hills Center had opened theatre-less in the 1960s and the 1988 expansion at the rear of the complex including two retailers and the cinema. The megaplex launched December 9, 1988 with first-run films. On February 2, 1994, Regal Cinemas Inc. purchased LItchfield’s 24 theatre portfolio adding the Windsor and the Kickingbird. Regal marketed the venue as the Regal Windsor Hills 10. Citing lack of patrons, Regal closed up shop there on January 16, 2005.
Hoping to squeeze out a few more dollars - one at a time - Western Pacific Theater Group headed by Charles Boenning took on the Windsor Hills Cinema 10 as a sub-run, discount house on June 10, 2005. It was Western Pacific’s third Oklahoma theatre with locations in Hawaii, California, Texas, and Nevada. The policy was ultra-discount with cheap concessions and prices ranging from $1.50 down to 50 cent Tuesdays. Patrons were skeptical and Western Pacific moved along.
B&B Theatres Circuit took on the venue in 2009 and gave it a facelift while elevating it back to first-run status beginning on November 20, 2009 as the B&B Windsor 10. It was closed on August 25, 2019.. This was kind of an interesting move as few theatre circuits invested so much money in the 21st Century on a multiplex that featured non-stadium seating. But it worked out and the theatre was a plucky survivor all the way to the end of a ten-year lease. Few seemed to notice that it was gone and in the 2020s it appeared ready for anyone to take it over.
This Facebook post says that the ICON cinema chain has plans to renovate and reopen the Windsor Hills 10. ICON also intended to reopen the old Litchfield-built Kickingbird Cinemas at Edmond, OK, but have missed their announced opening date, so we shall see. They might have overextended themselves. They currently have only three locations, two in New Mexico and one in Colorado.
