    This sounds interesting if you are in to indie cinema.

    I love this idea! I hope the name "Rodeo" is not misleading or off-putting.

    Except that it’s the actual name of the historic theater. Hopefully those who’d otherwise like to pretend that OKC doesn’t have Western heritage will recognize the authenticity of this particular brand and overlook their bias against the city having any type of cowboy-related connections whatsoever. I get not wanting to be stereotyped, but we should also be embracing authentic elements where they apply.

    It's about as authentically "Oklahoma City" as you can get.

    This type of venue is much needed in this town.

    No but getting close.

    My best friend manages the place. Shooting for an opening around Aug. 10-17. I've taken the tour and had no idea it was a shared space, but it's a neat little space.
    Expect some really different movies

    This place is incredible, saw Amazing Grace last night (fantastic movie - Aretha singing gospel at an LA church in 1972). Don't know what it looked like before, but it's top-notch now. 170 reclining, super-poofy seats, some leather chairs with tables, good-sized screen, nice tin roof in the lobby (which has a concession bar (with reasonable prices) and a little seating area with a bunch of tables/chairs and reading material, chandeliers...

    The people that work there are really nice and knowledgeable, said they're trying to get Joe Bob Briggs to make a stop here on his tour, and also going to build a new bldg a block or so away with 2 more screens, wish they could just put the extra screens in the same bldg, but that's impossible, so at least they're able to do them just a short walk away. They said they get a decent amount of business, about half-full on some weekend nights, and for their VHS and Chill events they get fairly full, hope they can make it, great addition for indie films, hope DeadCenter uses it, it'd be perfect for that.

    Added bonus for us - just a 10-15 minute drive straight down Villa/Agnew (we're at 36th/May)!

    Ate at McClintock afterwards, another great experience.

    Andd they are building a new companion theater just around the corner, with the plan to operate both facilities.

    Saw an ad for DeadCenter before the film, and forgot to ask them if they were planning on hosting any events, and it looks like this year they're not, but wondering if anybody knows if they will in the future? Seems like it'd be a good place for things, but maybe not close enough to downtown to truly make it feasible.

    Went here for the first time on Saturday late afternoon. Went with a small group to see the Red Dog Saloon independent film/documentary.

    Nice little place. Saw the 3:30pm showing. Maybe 20 other people there. Decent size little theatre with traditional and non-traditional seating. Screens a little small unless you're sitting in the first half of the cinema. Sound was acceptable for the types of movies shown. Would definitely go back.

    We've been twice now (Linda Ronstadt was our second flick) and sound was great for both, only complaint is that the front half seats aren't sloped much, if at all, so if someone tall sits in front of you and you can't move to another seat, too bad for you. Wasn't a problem with us, though - we were the only ones at Aretha, and there were only about 30 or so at Linda.

    Yeah, I hope they do enough business to stay around. Made for a fun afternoon. Went and saw the movie and then walked through cowtown and ended up eating dinner at Cattleman's.

    At the cinema we sat just past the middle in those swivel low back chairs. No recline at all, but we were surprisingly comfortable.

    I noticed that they were showing Parasite as recently as 2 weeks ago. At the time, I don't think any of the local theater chains were showing it (they probably are now since it won best picture).

    Quail Springs at least had it a few months ago. But, yeah, it's probably seen an expansion/rerelease since winning best picture.

    There were plenty of theaters showing Parasite when it first came out in November, I saw it at Tinseltown then, and then again at the MOA in January. (BTW, highly highly recommend seeing it if you haven't already.)
