‘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.

LETTERS


Letters to the Editor

Wanda Jo Stapleton
Thanks for publishing that great commentary (Sept. 11, Gazette) titled “Contraception empowers women” by Ryan Kiesel. Kiesel said that Oklahoma legislators passed an amendment to “limit access to emergency contraception in Oklahoma.” Limiting access to emergency contraception would undoubtedly mean more unintended pregnancies, thus the likelihood of more abortions — abortions which these same legislators fanatically oppose! What a revolting development!

Love is in the air

Gazette staff
Someone must have dumped a love potion into the water at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden. On Sept. 26, the zoo welcomed a newborn giraffe — who doesn’t have a name yet — into the world.

Tear it up

Project 180 improvements enter a new phase, and with that comes new road closures. But, construction will be more city friendly than it has been, officials promise.


News

Tim Farley
Downtown Oklahoma City streets are about to be ripped apart again, but fortunately for motorists and pedestrians, lessons were learned from the last round of road construction.

Escape Plan

Sly and Arnie, bar none.


Action

Back in the mid-1980s, when Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger were box-office rivals, a true pairing of the two — Expendables ensembles don't count — would have grossed millions of kajillions of dollars.

Crosstown traffic

A recent Crosstown Boulevard development meeting brought anger and praise from city residents.


News

Ben Felder
An hour before 18,000 passionate Thunder fans roared inside Chesapeake Energy Arena, there was a slightly smaller crowd of equally passionate citizens across the street at an open house hosted by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) to showcase four ideas for a crosstown boulevard in downtown Oklahoma City.
