Dead alive

And you need not take a road trip or forego showering.

Attention, Grateful Dead fans! Yes, you, with the VW van and the closet full of bootleg tapes!

Just a few hours from now — 7 p.m. to be exact — Jerry Garcia’s would-be 70th birthday will be recognized at two local theaters with a rare screening of the 1977 concert film The Grateful Dead Movie. This one-night-only event will be shown at Cinemark Tinseltown, 6001 N. Martin Luther King, and the Hollywood Spotlight 14, 1100 N. Interstate Drive in Norman.

Being a presentation of Fathom Events, there’s more to it than just the flick of the classic rock band at work. Bob Weir and other surprise guests join for a “special birthday commemoration” for Garcia, who died in 1995.

Area 407

The found-footage film travels to Jurassic Park.


Horror

Rod Lott
Found-footage movies are no longer novel, but they're cheap to make, so expect to see many, many more shoot out Hollywood's pipeline. As long as concepts are tweaked, however, surprises like Chronicle can occur.

The Campaign

Enough laughs to make your chad hang.


Comedy

Rod Lott
In any other year but an election year, I’d like to think The Campaign would have been a bigger hit. It's certainly funny; it's also certainly too close to the truth: American politics is a game of money.

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.
