STILLWATER, Okla. — The city of Stillwater and Warren Theatres are in negotiations for the construction of a new luxury movie theater in the downtown-campus corridor area.

The City and theater brand are working to find a location within the tax increment finance district and finalize an agreement.

“The ultimate goal is to provide a premier place to watch movies in Stillwater,” said Dan Gray, vice president of Warren Theaters, based in Wichita, Kansas.

Warren Theatres are known for providing a high-quality theater experience, featuring recliner seats and other services.

“In our 2017 Citizen Satisfaction Survey, 91 percent said it was important to create and attract vibrant, quality development like high-end movie theaters,” City Manager Norman McNickle said. “We believe this potential venture with Warren Theatres will meet our residents’ expectations for quality entertainment.”

The effort to bring the theater to the city is part of the Stillwater Reinvestment Plan, which helps the city achieve its development objectives after seeking out public support and assistance.

The only two Warren locations in Oklahoma are in Broken Arrow and Moore.
