The two-bedroom townhouse lacked parking and a backyard. Its proximity to a major road and a train station made for noisy evenings. But like many young Australians, Georgia Blackie felt she needed to buy it or rent for the rest of her life. She lives in Melbourne, one of the world’s wildest and most expensive real estate markets.

Starworld 20 movie theater is celebrating its 20th anniversary in far south Tulsa in a big way, introducing reserved recliner seating, a giant-screen auditorium with wow-factor sound and more updates to come.You may see a work crew present, and you'll notice that half of the 20-screen megaplex remains off-limits, so there's still a bit of an "under construction" feel.But that atmosphere is readying Starworld 20, 10301 S. Memorial Drive, for updates that will eventually include full-bar service and the state's first 4DX effects-driven auditorium by the time it's all done this year.It's a multimillion-dollar renovation by B&B Theatres, which bought Starworld in 2014 and realized it needed updates that hadn't been addressed since it opened in 1998."People love the recliners and the reserved seating, and now we'll have it at all three of our Tulsa locations, in Sapulpa and Claremore and at Starworld," said Brock Bagby, executive vice-president of B&B Theatres, a Missouri … [Read more...] about Starworld: South Tulsa theater celebrates 20 years with renovations including recliners, bar service and more
