Local Legend: Warren “Lane” Gavitt

Mr. Gavitt is incredibly passionate about Enid’s local businesses, but more specifically, the local film industry. He has been a member of the Gaslight Theatre’s acting community for several years and starred in a variety of plays, and most recently starred in Green Day’s American Idiot: The Musical as Tunny Lane. He has worn many hats, from Marine Veteran to Motocross racer to bull rider to business owner, but film holds a truly special place in his heart. In 2020, he became President of Enid’s annual FLY Film Festival and played a key role in organizing the festival, fundraising, scheduling events, networking, and promoting local businesses and organizations. The festival highlighted powerful films like Black Wall Street Burning, which was featured in the local newspaper, and had an incredible turnout coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lane is passionate about supporting Enid’s local industries and chose to network with area businesses like Settler’s Brewing Co., Dandy’s Donuts, Deli and Delights, and Enid Brewing Co. & Eatery for dining and entertainment. As a business owner himself, he truly cares not only about the community, but about its people and drawing attention to the local film industry. His commitment to growing local businesses is what makes him a hidden gem. You won’t find a more kind, passionate or driven individual. He truly cares about helping Enid grow and he deserves this recognition. Congratulations Mr. Gavitt! If you would like to nominate a Local Legend, email your nomination to robert@enidmonthly.com!
