Historic preservationists like Lisa Chronister and Catherine Montgomery don’t give up. Controversy over Stage Center, the former Mummers Theater in downtown Oklahoma City, built in 1970, is a classic example.
Unless you have, like, a really big TV, opportunities to revisit cinematic classics on the big screen don’t come along all that often. The Oklahoma City Museum of Art’s Film Preservation Festival gives you that opportunity for five consecutive evenings, beginning with Orson Welles’ The Lady from Shanghai 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the museum, 415 Couch Drive. Tickets are $7-$9. Call 236-3100 or visit okcmoa.com.
