Roll out the red carpet, because this district knows how to give you a star-studded time. Starting in 1907, what is now known as Film Row was home to film exchange distribution offices, a place where movie theater owners could return old films and exchange them for new releases. By the 1960s, every major film studio was represented in the area (along with theater supply stores), but changing technologies caused the industry to disintegrate, leaving Oklahoma City with the last remaining film exchange district in the U.S.
Thankfully, Film Row has experienced a rebirth that deeply respects its cinematic history. Boasting a unique mix of creative companies, restaurants and retail means that this district has plenty of opportunities to enjoy. Today, you can catch a classic film or live music at Paramount, an old Paramount Pictures screening room, buy succulent plants while sipping on coffee at the Plant Shoppe/Okay Yeah Co., or grab a drink and view the art galleries at 21c Museum Hotel Oklahoma City.
