MacArthur Park 4-Cinema

The MacArthur Park was a four-screen early "multiplex" before that term came into parlance. Located on MacArthur Boulevard at NW 23rd Street in Northwest Oklahoma City, across the street from the old Westwood Theater (now a church).

Opened on December 29, 1971, the theater showed first-run and low-budget first-run films. For example this is where I saw movies like “Legend of Boggy Creek”, “Phantom of the Paradise”, and “When A Stranger Calls”. I have no idea who the architect was but it was part of a strip mall. Its best years were the 1970’s and 1980’s and then it fell into rapid decline, closing in 1991.

In 2009, the building is a restaurant named OK Corral.

Someone has the information wrong above. I saw Play Misty For Me there in January 1972.

Only if the manager was named Richard Harris.

These exchanges constitute a recipe for us to be chastised by Ken Roe.
