Going to the movies has always been special.

For Tulsans who grew up in a time when movie palaces still existed downtown, the Ritz, Orpheum, Majestic, and Rialto are familiar names. Others remember early neighborhood theaters like the Delman, Will Rogers, and the Brook. Those memories and many more are captured in this exhibit on the history of Tulsa’s movie theaters. “Show Time” includes artifacts, photographs, and information on the extensive and memorable history of movie theaters throughout the Tulsa area, from the earliest, silent-era film houses and glamourous movie palaces to drive-ins and multiplexes.
