Tower Theatre is OKC’s most historic, independently owned live music and movie venue.

Opening in 1937, it operated as one of the city’s premiere movie houses for almost 40 years. After falling into disrepair in the 1970s, Tower closed its doors in 1985 until a brief revival as a music venue in 1999 that only lasted one year. Restoration began in 2014 and was completed in 2016. The complex includes the historic theatre space, private offices, and five bar/restaurant concepts.
