Queerbait

Shot in OKC, the VHS comedy Queerbait has so much against it — no script, a $100 budget, a 24-hour shoot — yet you'll be hooked.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa

Rather than retire, the Jackass franchise flirts with fiction — if not sexually harasses it — in the semi-scripted, wholly hilarious Bad Grandpa.


Comedy

Rod Lott

Riotous as they are, the Jackass movies have not been immune to the law of diminishing returns — in terms of laughs, not box office. That the fourth feature, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, is the funniest since the first, 2002's Jackass: The Movie, is something of an unexpected achievement.

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.

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.
