By Rod Lott August 25th, 2011

Shot in Oklahoma, “The Lamp” soon can be seen in Oklahoma. At 7 p.m. Sept. 15, the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Oklahoma hosts a special screening of the film at the Mabee Center, 7777 S. Lewis in Tulsa.

With a cast that includes Academy Award winner Louis Gossett Jr., the inspirational movie is about a broken man fighting to keep his marriage and life together after the death of their only child. Scheduled to appear at the benefit screening are director Tracy J. Trost and co-producer Jim Stovall, the Tulsa businessman who wrote the book on which the film is based.

All proceeds will benefit Make-A-Wish. For ticket information, call 918-495-6000. —Rod Lott
