Visual Arts

Shelly Hickman
In its storied, 101-year history, the Skirvin Hilton Hotel has accommodated some of the most influential people in the world, but no one until now — other than its legendary ghost, Effie, of course — stays for an entire year.

Comes a Bright Day

All is not calm, all is not ‘Bright.’


Thriller

Rod Lott
London, jazz, neon-lit nights, a posh hotel, a heist, Imogen Poots: Comes a Bright Day has so many elements I love to see in the movies, yet they add up to such a minuscule amount of pleasure. It's like pouring your favorite bubbly beverage all the way to the top of a frosty glass, only to see that once the head has subsided, you're left with so little.

Rod Lott
What began as an intended Saw prequel has spawned a franchise of its own, now that 2009’s The Collector has begat The Collection. I hope in my heart of hearts that The Collection begets a third chapter — The Collective, perhaps?

Weighing what’s important downtown

OKC city council votes to see whether a convention center hotel is necessary before proceeding further.


News

Tim Farley
Financing a convention center hotel in downtown Oklahoma City isn’t as important as discovering if one is actually needed. That was the consensus of the city council June 11 when it rejected a proposal to pay a financial management company an extra $100,000 on delivering financing options for a would-be convention center hotel. That firm, Chicago-based Public Financial Management, is under contract for other city projects.
