It’s the end of the world

And I feel like going to the theater

If the rapture doesn’t claim the godly this Saturday, a theater group is offering cheap seats.

Who am I kidding? I wouldn’t be raptured. I’m Catholic, and I’m pretty sure there’s no room for us on the rapture bus. That’s cool, I’ll just join the post-rapture looting party being organized on Facebook.

Locally, Ghostlight Theatre Club is getting in on the apocalypse-betting game. If the world hasn’t ended by noon on Saturday, the theater is offering $10 tickets to its 8 p.m. performance of “Lives of the Saints” — quite the appropriately named comedy, right?

Check out Oklahoma Gazette theater writer Larry Laneer’s review to find out more about show, a collection of seven short plays.

Reserve your post-apocalypse tickets by calling 286-9412.

The Perfect Family

Even if her movie does not, Kathleen Turner shines as a moralistic matriarch.


Drama

Rod Lott
The joke of The Perfect Family, of course, is that no such thing exists. Yet in the film, just as in real life, some people put on airs that suggest otherwise. The situation at the The joke of The Perfect Family, of course, is that no such thing exists. Yet in the film, just as in real life, some people put on airs that suggest otherwise. The situation at the heart of this dramedy is timely, if also a bit made-for-TV.

KKNG of kings

The transformation of KKNG to religious radio is just the latest gain for the Oklahoma Catholic Broadcasting Network.


Features

Jerry Bohnen
Larry Sousa had wanted to work in radio news since he was a child. Things didn’t work out that way for the 71-year-old — until now. Decades later, the Norman resident and devout Catholic isn’t just working in radio, but Catholic radio: Oklahoma City’s KKNG 97.3 FM.

The Kentucky Fried Movie

“I'm not wearing any pants. Film at 11.”


Comedy

Rod Lott
John Landis and the team of David Zucker/Jim Abrahams/Jerry Zucker may have made better movies directly afterward (National Lampoon's Animal House and Airplane!, respectively), but that's not to deny 1977's The Kentucky Fried Movie its rightful place in the all-time comedy canon. A career-launcher for all four, the scrappy Sketch Movie That Could holds up splendidly — in laughs, not fashions — in its Blu-ray debut.
