The Hornbeck Twin in Shawnee, Oklahoma has closed. The last update we received for the theater was October 1, 2020. The theater was jointly operated by Jones Theatres, Inc. and AMC Theatres.

The Shawnee News-Star published an article recently about the theater closing:

Downtown Shawnee landmark, the Hornbeck Theatre, 125 North Bell, will cease operation at the close of business Tuesday, September 29, 2020. The announcement was made by owner/operators Jones Theatres, Inc. and AMC Theatres.

Jones Theatre owner, Ronny Jones, cited the long six-month shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as availability of appropriate programming titles due to Hollywood’s shutdown in production, as reasons for the permanent closure.

“It’s like losing a family member,” Jones said. “The Hornbeck has been part of Jones Theatres since 1954. I’m confident that many, many people will have stories to tell about attending or working at the theater.”

For the final week of operation, two favorites from 1985 were chosen to play in the two auditoriums. Steven Spielberg’s “The Goonies” and “Back to the Future” will be the final big screen offerings.

The article details the theater's history, so be sure to check that out by clicking the Read link below. The article mentions that the two other Shawnee locations operated by Jones Theatres, the Cinema Centre 8 and the Movies 6 in Shawnee, will remain open.

Moviegoers in the area will need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the Cinema Centre 8 and the Movies 6 in Shawnee, and the Strothers Twin Cinema in Seminole.
