Remodeling project set for Bixby movie theatre, city gets part of building for emergency management


NEW AT 9:00, A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN POLICE AND THE LOCAL THEATER IN BIXBY. SHARON PHILLIPS JOINS US LIVE AFTER TALKING WITH THE OWNERS AND THE CITY ABOUT HOW THE SUIT — ABOUT HOW THIS IS A WIN FOR BOTH. Reporter: MOVIE POSTERS LIKE THIS ARE MEANT TO CATCH OUR ATTENTION. NOW OWNERS ARE HOPING THIS NEWLY REMODELED FACILITY WILL GRAB YOUR ATTENTION. MOVIES ARE AN ESCAPE FROM REALITY AND THEY ALLOW US TO GO TO UNBELIEVABLE PLACES. THANKS TO THIS DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT, THE OWNERS OF THIS THEATER WILL BE GIVING THEIR CUSTOMERS ON — A NEW EXPERIENCE. JENNY COMES TO THE MOVIES SEVERAL TIMES A WEEK. SHE SAYS SHE IS EXCITED ABOUT THE RENOVATIONS. THE CHAIRS NEEDED RENOVATION. THE ARMS WERE WORN OUT. THEY NEED TO FIX THE CHAIRS, THEY ARE REALLY WORN OUT. COMFORTABLE CHAIRS WOULD BE GREAT. Reporter: ANOTHER EXCITING ASPECT IS THEY CAN USE ONE OF THE ROOMS FOR AN EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT COMMAND CENTER. FIRST RESPONDERS CAN USE THE PARKING LOT FOR LIVE STAGING FOR EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT. THE OWNER OF THIS THEATER SENT US THIS STATEMENT SAYING “NOW THAT THE AGREEMENT HAS BEEN SIGNED, WE ARE WORKING WITH OUR ARCHITECTS AND BANKERS. WE HOPE TO START THE REMODEL IN LATE 2017 OR EARLY 2018.” THE CITY IS USING INCENTIVES
