Not ‘Bad’

The walking dead invade the 405.

I couldn’t tell from the postcard we got in the office, but the locally shot film Bad to the Jones is a zombie comedy. The trailer below makes that completely clear.

If the undead makes your attention come alive, boy, are you in luck! Marlon Ladd’s Bad to the Jones screens at 8 p.m. tomorrow, May 3, at Cinemark Tinseltown, 6001 Martin Luther King, with arrivals at 7 p.m. Should be fun, but there’s one hitch: Tickets must be ordered at badtothejones.com, as you can’t get them at the theater. Click away for a tale of two brothers and a city under siege! —Rod Lott

jaws

You’re going to need a bigger boat ... again!

Six bona fide movie classics are headed back to Cinemark Tinseltown.

One of my 10 favorite movies of all time, space and dimension, Jaws, is not only debuting on Blu-ray on Tuesday, but soon will re-surface on the big screen at Cinemark Tinseltown, 6001 Martin Luther King.

The supreme shark flick to end all shark flicks kicks off the Cinemark Fall Classic Series, which features digitally restored prints of half a dozen classic films, Oscar winners all. Each will play for one Thursday only, with showings at 2 and 7 p.m. Here’s the schedule:

Jaws (1975), Aug. 23
High Noon (1952), Aug. 30
Doctor Zhivago (1965), Sept. 6
Chinatown (1974), Sept. 13
The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957), Sept. 20
• The African Queen (1951), Sept. 27

Tickets are just $4-$6, and on sale now at cinemark.com. —Rod Lott

‘Plan’ on it

RiffTrax offers a second chance to see them eviscerate a shlock sci-fi classic.

Plan one: Any self-respecting fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000 should go see the RiffTrax gang do its thing tomorrow night to Ed Wood’s Plan 9 from Outer Space. Not for nothing has the 1959 sci-fi turkey starring Bela Lugosi and Bela Lugosi’s chiropractor been dubbed the “worst movie ever made.”

The 7:30 p.m. Thursday showing isn’t live, but it was four years ago, and if you didn’t see it then, trust me: It was hilarious.

Or don’t trust me and see it yourself. That’s what I’m urging you to do, anyway, and you may do so at either AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, 2501 W. Memorial, or Tinseltown USA, 6001 N. Martin Luther King.

The Ultimate Life

Drama

Louis Fowler
Even with The Ultimate Life’s imminent release, it didn’t truly hit Edmond screenwriter Lisa Shillingburg that her screenplay for the movie was becoming a reality until she noticed a standee one afternoon at the movies.
