BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - A new development along the Creek Turnpike in Broken Arrow is bringing an upscale movie theater to Green Country.
Among the highlights of Shops at Aspen Creek are restaurants, quality retail stores and a Warren Theatre, a 90,000 square foot facility with 14 screens.
Warren Theatres combine higher-end food and concessions with a unique seating arrangement and upscale environment.
"We have been trying to get an arrangement with Warren Theatre for years," said Vice Mayor Richard Carter. "I have been to several of these theaters and they are fantastic. There's really nothing like this around here."
The 100-acre development is located south of the Creek Turnpike at Aspen Avenue.
Broken Arrow officials say negotiations began two years ago with the site's developer, Daniel Signorelli, president of SIG-Broken Arrow, Ltd. The final agreement provides an incentive package of up to $7.25 million, providing the City's actual receipt of real property for right-of-way and detention ponds as well as public infrastructure construction, including access roads and public water, storm water and sanitary sewer lines.
A $3.25 million sales tax rebate will serve as an incentive for the developer to perform.
The Broken Arrow theater will be only the second of its kind in Oklahoma. The first Warren Theatre in the state is in Moore.
The construction schedule has yet to be announced.
