The MacArthur Park was a four-screen early "multiplex" before that term came into parlance. Located on MacArthur Boulevard at NW 23rd Street in Northwest Oklahoma City, across the street from the old Westwood Theater (now a church).
The MacArthur Park Cinema 4 opened on December 29, 1971. The theater showed first-run and low-budget first-run films. For example this is where I saw movies like “Legend of Boggy Creek”, “Phantom of the Paradise”, and “When A Stranger Calls”. I have no idea who the architect was but it was part of a strip mall. Its best years were the 1970’s and 1980’s and then it fell into rapid decline, closing on April 22, 1990. It reopened in April 1992 operated by MI theatres as a discount house, but closed on September 30, 1992.
Two screen were opened as a dance club and the other two screen reopened for movies and it was renamed MacArthur Park Twin Cinema and Dance Club from May 21, 1993, closing on June 10, 1993. The 2 Dance club auditoriums continued to be used as a night club.
In 2009, the building is a restaurant named OK Corral.
