Escape from Tomorrow

With Escape from Tomorrow, one fears the story behind the movie would loom larger than the movie itself. Luckily, that is not the case. After all, it opens with a decapitation on Disney World’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad roller coaster.

Sorcerer

William Friedkin spends a lot of time in his 2013 memoir discussing why Sorcerer didn't click with critics and audiences even though he believes it to be better than his previous film, The Exorcist. Now that Warner Home Video has reissued Sorcerer on Blu-ray, we can see what Friedkin's fuss is all about.

Broadchurch: The Complete First Season

Welcome to the coastal resort of Broadchurch, population … oh, who can keep track, what will all the corpses? Yes, Broadchurch is yet another British television procedural involving the search for a murderer in a quaint little town, just like the limited series The Fall and Top of the Lake.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

Essentially part five in the ridiculously profitable horror franchise, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones continues the found-footage conceit of the other films. The difference is instead of the scares taking place in rich white suburbia, they do so in a junky apartment complex on a largely Latino side of Oxnard, Calif.

Prime real estate

After purchasing the entire building, the owner of The Paramount OKC plans to expand its film-related offerings.


Features

Devon Green
Oklahoma City’s Film Row district — once an area that housed vacant downtown businesses and no residential property — has undergone a serious transformation in the past few years. Until recently, there was little left of the area that used to be a bustling film exchange of the early 20th century.

Back in action

Rebuilding after last May’s tornadoes, Winchester Drive In Theatre is once again open for business.


Features

Louis Fowler
When many local cinephiles heard word that the legendary Winchester Drive In Theatre was hit hard by last year’s epic spate of tornadic activity, an aura of sadness spread throughout the community. After all, the drive-in was a celebratory gathering place for movie fans looking for nostalgia and families looking for inexpensive entertainment, as well as an integral part of the Oklahoma City landscape, a piece of the past that, sadly, is pretty much dead in America.

Wills power

Oklahoma legend Bob Wills finally gets his cinematic due thanks to OKPOP.


Features

Louis Fowler
Chuck Berry. Little Richard. Elvis Presley. These are usually the first names that come to mind when rattling off who the originators of rock and roll were. Sadly, only to those in the know, the name Bob Wills — the King of Western Swing — very rarely makes the list. But if Tulsa’s Oklahoma Museum of Pop Culture (OKPOP) has its way, it could rewrite the pop music history books forever.

Superheroic 

Christopher Nolan’s three Batman movies have been issued together on Blu-ray before, but not as lavishly and bells-and-whistles-laden as with the six-disc The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition ($99.97), limited to 141,000 sets. As if the films weren’t excellent in themselves, the sturdy box houses three Bat-toys, one 48-page book and five art prints by cult illustrator Mondo.

Film preservation

The revival of The Paramount OKC theater has the historic Film Row district beaming once again.


Features

Shawn Lealos

When Oklahoma became a state back in 1907, the film industry moved into the area now known as the Film Exchange District, or Film Row. In those days of early cinema, studios set up screening houses across the country for theater owners to preview movies and decide which ones they would carry.
