Circle Cinema is the official Satellite Screen for the Sundance Film Festival in Tulsa, and will serve as the only venue in several surrounding states. 12 Festival films will screen alongside programming from local directors and artists.

“It is exciting for the 2021 Sundance Film Festival to come to Tulsa.” said Circle Cinema Programmer Chuck Foxen. “This is America’s largest independent film festival, it’s a big deal for Circle Cinema and for Tulsa. I have attended the Festival in Utah for the last 10 years, and most of the major films that play at Circle Cinema are first seen at the Festival. This will be an opportunity for Oklahoma to see award-winning movies before anyone else, with added enrichment of filmmaker Q&As, panel discussions, and more.”

Health & Safety is Our Top Priority

To present the Festival safely, films will show at larger partner venues throughout Tulsa. Admiral Twin Drive-In is a confirmed venue, and other potential locations include Philbrook Museum of Art, Gilcrease Museum, University of Tulsa, and OSU-Tulsa. This will allow for more seats per screening than Circle’s standard theaters while still maintaining social distancing through reduced seating capacity at partner venues. Masks will be mandatory at all times in adherence with city ordinance and Circle Cinema’s own code of conduct. Panel discussions, filmmaker Q&As, and other events related to the Festival will take place outdoors either drive-in style or with open-air distanced seating.

Films and Showtimes

Film titles and showtimes will be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets will go on sale Thursday January 7, with an exclusive pre-sale window for Circle Cinema Members.

Presented locally by Leigh and John Reaves, with collaborating sponsors Tulsa Office of Film, Music, Arts, and Culture, The Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation, and Hardesty Family Foundation.
