The Edmond City Hall Theater has launched a new initiative to allow patrons to send special messages to loved ones on the big screen at 45 Main Street. This initiative will include three love-themed films and revised viewing times on Valentine’s Day weekend to complement popular dinner reservation times.
Big Screen Valentines will allow customers to customize not only the wording of their message, but also the appearance, by selecting one of three available templates. During the first two weekends of February, the Big Screen Valentines will be shown on screen for the first 30 minutes before each film begins. The messages can be ordered online for $25 by going to edmondtownhall.org.
Edmond Town Hall Managers Chair Jennifer Guman said the new offering is “a great way to engage the community while providing support for Edmond Town Hall.
“These Valentines can be used by partners, children, family members and friends. Special messages can mean a lot to loved ones and community support means a lot to us,” she noted.
Licorice Pizza, an award-winning love story set in 1973 and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, premieres the first weekend in February. The film was named one of the best movies of 2021 by the American Film Institute and received four nominations at the 79th Golden Globe Awards, including Best Motion Picture Musical or Comedy.
