Originally designed by famed Architect W. Scott Dunne in 1937, the Art Deco Tower Theater with its landmark neon sign is located along an original stretch of Route 66.  The theater was among the first suburban theaters in Oklahoma City.  The ornate auditorium had a complete working stage, pipe organ and billowing, scarlet waterfall stage curtains.

Now in a booming part of Oklahoma City referred to as Uptown 23, the theater is positioned to once again become a beacon for the neighborhood, providing mixed use retail and entertainment space for a burgeoning community.
