Downtown Marketing

The Tulsa Convention and Visitors Bureau, in association with downtown businesses, establishes a downtown marketing committee to create and promote opportunities for individuals to visit downtown after 5 p.m.
“There are so many exciting things occurring in downtown Tulsa, but those individuals who don’t live and work here every day may not be aware of the transformation taking place,” said Tom Green, director of downtown relations for the Convention and Visitors Bureau and committee chair. “This committee was established to help spur increased interest in downtown and create opportunities for people to take advantage of Tulsa’s newest attraction – downtown.”
Numerous new constructions, activities and rehabilitation efforts already in progress throughout downtown, including the BOK Center, ONEOK Field, Mayo Hotel, Brady Theater and festivals like Dfest and Mayfest are all catalysts for the joint effort.
And where current opportunities do not exist, the committee is creating them with events like the Downtown CineSeries, which kicks off Wednesday, June 24. Free and open to the public, the outdoor film and music event will take place on the Greens located on Third Street between the Crowne Plaza Tulsa Williams Center and the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. Food and adult beverages provided by Crowne Plaza will be available for purchase and live music performed by local artist Daniel Walcher will begin at 7:30 p.m. with the showing of Rumble Fish following at dusk.
Filmed in 1983 in Sapulpa, Rumble Fish was directed by Francis Coppola and written by Tulsa’s own S.E. Hinton. The cast includes, Matt Dillon, Diane Lane, Nicolas Cage, Mickey Rourke, Tom Waits and Dennis Hopper. The film is the story of Rusty James an absent-minded street thug who struggles to live up to his legendary older brother’s reputation and longs for the glory days of street gang warfare.
Attendees should bring blankets and lawn chairs.
