Tulsa, OK 74104
As Tulsa's last remaining historic movie theatre, Circle Cinema has operated as a non-profit, independent art house cinema since 2004. The Circle originally opened in 1928 in Whittier Square, Tulsa's first "suburban" shopping center, and has been a fixture in the Kendall Whittier business and arts district ever since. Circle Cinema is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Its mission is to promote community consciousness through film by offering diverse entertaining, enlightening and educational film and event programming. Offerings include indie films, documentaries, and foreign films, as well as familiar classics and popular new films. Don't miss special opportunities to see concert films and music documentaries, along with broadcasts of renowned live stage and dance productions. The Anime Club has a great fan base and the Graveyard Shift series brings popular cult favorites. Experience a throwback to the silent movie days with the Second Saturday Silents Series that features live accompaniment on the Circle's original 1928 Robert Morton theatre pipe organ.
Experience something special at Circle Cinema by hearing guest speakers, participating in post-film Q&A sessions, and attending premiers of films made in Oklahoma, starring Oklahomans or made by or about Oklahomans.
