The Bourne Legacy

The spy franchise is 'Bourne' again with a new leading man.


Phil Bacharach
Just because you don’t have Jason Bourne, Matt Damon or a Robert Ludlum novel to crib from doesn’t mean you can’t still wring some thrills out of the Bourne franchise. With the dog days of the summer box-office season comes The Bourne Legacy, a respectable spy actioner, even if it falls short of the standard set by its predecessors.

Closing time

Horn Seed closing shop after nine decades in business.


Heidi Rambo Centrella
When Horn Seed Company opened its doors for business in Oklahoma City, Rudolph Valentino was the nation’s leading sex symbol, Babe Ruth commanded the baseball diamond and Warren G. Harding was in the White House. After 91 years in business, Horn Seed, 1409 Northwest Expressway, is closing its doors.

Skate it

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
Turns out there’s a reason 1979’s Skatetown, U.S.A. has never hit VHS or DVD: It really sucks. The alleged comedy starring Scott Baio and Patrick Swayze will get a live, Mystery Science Theater 3000-style beating from The Movie Clubbed, whose members include a few Oklahoma Gazetteers, at 8 p.m. Saturday at Oklahoma City Museum of Art, 415 Couch. Also to be skewered: a 1972 short by the OKC Urban Renewal Authority. Tickets are $5-$8. Call 236-3100 or visit

Scope it

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
Here’s hoping the stars come out Saturday night for this party: the 7 p.m. one celebrating International Astronomy Day. The Oklahoma City Astronomy Club invites the public to check out their telescopes (not a euphemism) to see Jupiter, Neptune and Uranus (again, not a euphemism). Head to the park on Old Lakeshore Drive at Lake Hefner’s northeast corner, just south of Hefner Road. Admission is free. Visit
