When it comes to going to the movies these days, amenities are often the thing that either draws a person to choose a theater or pass it by. Some people even wonder if the movie theater is dying out. But a visit to the indulgent, pampering style of seeing a film at Tulsa’s Cinergy will prove why theaters are still a wonderful, fun event not to be missed. Step inside, and you’ll see why this is the hottest — and most bang for your buck — ticket in town.

Cinergy’s entertainment venue in Tulsa’s active 71st Street and Memorial Drive area is one of the most popular destinations for fun-loving Tulsans of all ages, and it’s easy to see why. There’s so much to do, all under one roof. “We’re an all-in-one-house entertainment center for all ages,” says Aaron Latus, general manager.

This convenience is one reason why Cinergy is so popular. For a casual date night or time with your friends, you can catch a movie and then hang out in the bar area, sipping drinks and watching sports on the big screen TVs. There are escape rooms, VR games, and bowling too.

But even if all you want to do is enjoy some time out of the house to catch the latest flick, Cinergy offers an experience you won’t quite find anywhere else. Once you buy your ticket, head in the opposite direction of the gaming floor and toward the movie area, where eight theaters are nestled quietly away from all the other Cinergy fun. The movie attendant will happily point you where you need to go. The venue shows first-run movies with all-digital projection for a superior showing.

When you enter the movie theaters, you’ll notice immediately that this is more than just a cineplex. There are luxurious, cushioned leather seats that are supremely comfortable. Sure, these seats recline, but moviegoers have come to expect that. What’s extra unusual and surprisingly appealing is the fact that these cushy seats are heated. Imagine coming inside on a snowy or icy day and warming up with a seat that heats up to your liking. Tempting, right?

Even better, you can slide in right as the movie starts, grab your seat, and press the button on your chair. This seat-side ordering service allows you to buy a sizable portion of popcorn and a drink and have it delivered to you as you relax — what a perfect way to enjoy films without waiting in a long, boring concession line.

But why stop with popcorn and soda? After all, Cinergy has a full menu of premium, chef-driven options to select from as you place your order. Enjoy a satisfying meal, from a juicy burger and fries to tacos and corn dogs. Eating light? Request a fresh fajita salad. Feeling cheesy? Order a pizza laden with the works. Wings, pretzel bites, quesadillas, chicken nuggets for the kiddos, cotton candy… The list feels nearly endless, and you’ll end up wanting to try it all.

Regulars who view movies at Cinergy love the fact that the whole experience has the feel of that home movie theater you’ve always dreamed of building. They also love the prices, which typically range from $5 specials on Tuesdays to $11 at the high point of the weekend. Cinergy keeps the cost of its tickets affordable, ensuring that moviegoers enjoy a fantastic experience in a very wallet-friendly way.  

Once a month on Saturdays at 9:30 a.m., Cinergy plans to show a family movie in an auditorium specially designed for those with autism and sensory processing disorders. These shows will feature elements that are fitting for those with special sensory needs, such as lowered volume, increased light levels, and room for guests to move rather than sitting still.

Also, Cinergy offers a rewards program for those who are regular visitors to their entertainment venue. Set up a loyalty account, and you’ll enter the Cinergy Elite program. This rewards program for frequent visitors provides all sorts of cool add-ons and benefits that film lovers appreciate, including access to movies before they officially premiere, free popcorn, and more.

Cinergy offers special theater packages for groups of five or more, offering appealing savings on films. Look for special offers such as Girls Night Out packages and more. The theaters range in size from as few as 35 to as many as 159 seats. So, anything from a small birthday party to a corporate getaway are possibilities.

Beyond the savings and the fun, the top-notch service Cinergy offers will keep you coming back for more. “Our service is what sets us apart, as far as being attentive to the needs of the guests and making it an awesome experience,” says Latus.
