The 89’er Theatre
First-run movies have arrived in Kingfisher! With three screens, stadium seating and digital sound, the 89'er Theatre, which opened in December 2005, offers big city entertainment with old-time cinema atmosphere (and ticket prices to match!) Replacing the original 89'er Theatre, a Main Street landmark that burned to the ground in March 2004, the new theatre has downtown Kingfisher jumping after dark.


Come visit soon, but be sure to buy your tickets early...this theatre is playing to sell-out crowds!


Plan to visit our 100 year old gateway to the Past.

Governor Seay Mansion
Abraham Jefferson Seay was an Associate Justice of the first Supreme Court of Oklahoma Territory with district court responsibilities for Kingfisher, Canadian, and Beaver Counties. Subsequently, he was appointed the second governor of Oklahoma Territory in 1892. The Mansion was completed in March, 1892, in anticipation of the territorial capital being moved from Guthrie to Kingfisher-an event that never occurred. For more information, call (405) 375-5176.

Chisholm Trail Museum
The Museum presents and preserves artifacts from the historic Chisholm Cattle Trail, American Indian culture, and indigenous wildlife, early farming and ranching, and much more.
