Wes Anderson-infused Banquet Cinema to open this month

Infused with the spirit of iconic filmmaker Wes Anderson, Banquet Cinema is set to introduce Oklahoma City to a new way approach to viewing movies that combines a pub with two theaters showing new and classic movies, televised sports and other community favorites.

The two-screen cinema and pub opens Feb. 13 in a former Pontiac and Chrysler showroom and garage at 800 NW 4 and continues the westward expansion of downtown.

Unlike most movie theaters, Banquet Cinema's lobby is surrounded by showroom windows providing ample view of outside traffic. The signage, the art and design choices purposely reflect the whimsical décor and bright colors of Anderson's films.

The lights in the pub and lobby reflect that style, as does the wall covered with posters created by artist Dusty Gilpin of Bill Murray's Oceanographer Steve Zissou in “The Life Aquatic.”
