Carrie Prom

Come sway with us on Friday, April 19th at 9:30 PM for a screening of the 1976 Brian De Palma classic, CARRIE. Put on your prom best and compete for the title of Rodeo Cinema Prom King and Queen! A DJ will provide slow jams in our lobby starting at 9:00 PM for those who want to dance cheek to cheek and we might even have a few surprises up our sleeves.

About the film: In this chilling adaptation of Stephen King's horror novel, withdrawn and sensitive teen Carrie White (Sissy Spacek) faces taunting from classmates at school and abuse from her fanatically pious mother (Piper Laurie) at home. When strange occurrences start happening around Carrie, she begins to suspect that she has supernatural powers. Invited to the prom by the empathetic Tommy Ross (William Katt), Carrie tries to let her guard down, but things eventually take a dark and violent turn.


***It should go without saying...but please...no animal blood.

Charm City- free screening with discussion

Join us for our next free Indie Lens Pop-up Series screening of CHARM CITY on Wednesday, April 24th at 7:00 p.m.. Following the screening, a panel discussion will take place featuring Oklahoma County Commissioner Carrie Blumert, OKC group lead of Moms Demand Action- OK Jennifer Birch, Ward 7 Councilwoman Nikki Nice, and Lead Minister of The First Unitarian Church of Oklahoma City Diana Davies. The discussion will be moderated by Moms Demand Action volunteer Cacky Poarch.

About the film: On the streets of Baltimore, shooting is rampant, the murder rate is approaching an all-time high and the distrust of the police is at a fever pitch. With nerves frayed and neighborhoods in distress, dedicated community leaders, compassionate law-enforcement officers and a progressive young city councilman try to stem the epidemic of violence. Filmed over three tumultuous years covering the lead up to, and aftermath of, Freddie Gray’s death in police custody, CHARM CITY is an intimate cinema verité portrait of those surviving in, and fighting for, the vibrant city they call home.

2018 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour

The 2018 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour is a 91-minute theatrical program of seven short films selected from this year’s Festival, widely considered the premier showcase for short films and the launchpad for many now-prominent independent filmmakers for more than 30 years. Including fiction, documentary and animation from around the world, the 2018 program offers new audiences a taste of what the Festival offers, from laugh-out-loud comedy to contemplative reflections of the world we live in.

Fueled by artistic expression and limited only by their runtime, short films transcend traditional storytelling.

They are a significant and popular way artists can connect with audiences. From documentary to animation, narrative to experimental, the abbreviated form is made for risk-taking. The Festival has always treated short films with the highest regard and gives a home to both established and new filmmakers with shorts for audiences to discover and celebrate.

The Festival's Short Film Program has long been established as a place to discover talented directors, such as past alums Damien Chazelle, Wes Anderson, Jill Soloway, Spike Jonze, Paul Thomas Anderson, Dee Rees, Taika Waititi, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, Lake Bell, Debra Granik, Jay and Mark Duplass, Todd Haynes, Lynne Ramsay, Andrea Arnold, and many others.
