TULSA, Oklahoma -

The City of Tulsa recognized Circle Cinema for its role in the 1983 movie, "The Outsiders."

"It's almost like seeing the movie for the first time again," said Ryan Thomas, the Circle Cinema Communications Manager.

Warner Brothers are releasing 'The Outsiders' in 4K and Circle Cinema is showing a few advanced screenings ahead of the November release.

"It's a chance to revisit all those old memories about the film and really see them like never before," said Thomas.

The first was today after a plaque dedication ceremony with Mayor G.T. Bynum recognizing Circle Cinema as an official filming location in The Outsiders.

"Part of what's such a rich, rich Tulsa's history and what's become such an iconic movie not for the city, but for the whole country. And everyone loves the film, and the book, to be part of that -- it's just - it's really neat," said Thomas.

It's not just a better picture, fans can expect a newer version of the classic film.

"This is the complete novel cut of the film. It's an extended version, features 20 minutes of new scenes. Including one of PonyBoy Curtis walking out of the Circle Cinema," said Thomas.

The film has a message of staying true to yourself and many said that's something a lot of can Oklahomans relate to.

"Seeing the personal connection everyone has with it and sharing that in the theatre environment is always really magical," said Thomas.
