Noise it


OKG7 things to do

Music and visual arts don’t have to be exclusive to one another. In fact, they’re probably more related than you think. Noise Makers, a group exhibition exploring the relationship between the two mediums, opens 6 p.m. Friday at Mainsite Contemporary Art, 122 E. Main St. in Norman, and will run through Jan. 11. Admission is free. Call 360-1162 or visit mainsite-art.com.

Mock darkroom


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Back in the olden days, you needed this thing called a camera to take a photograph. You also had to let the photo sit in a room with a dark red tint before you could see what was on it. Mark Zimmerman, the University of Central Oklahoma’s assistant professor of photography, is recreating this long-lost darkroom phenomenon as part of the Ansel Adams and Brett Weston exhibits currently on display at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, 415 Couch Drive. Museum admission is $5-$12 and free for members. Call 236-3100 or visit okcmoa.com.

Wednesday–Sunday, Tuesday–Wednesday, ongoing

A Hard Day’s Night


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

The Beatles were fairly successful at the whole music thing, but they were pretty good at the movie thing too. A Hard Day’s Night — released at the peak of Beatlemania — is arguably the band’s most iconic big-screen adaptation, detailing its hectic lifestyle and the flat-out insane people who stalked the English icons on tour. See the film 5:30 and 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at Oklahoma City Museum of Art, 415 Couch Drive. Tickets are $7-$9. Call 236-3100 or visit okcmoa.com.

But it’s even better when you’re playing at one of the region’s most scenic and prestigious courses. The 2014 U.S. Senior Open features some of the sport’s most recognizable names — Fred Couples, Colin Montgomerie, Vijay Singh and more — and the major USGA championship officially tees off 7:15 a.m. Thursday at Oak Tree National, 1515 W. Oak Tree Drive in Edmond, with the final round on Sunday. Tickets are $20-$225. Call 726-9700 or visit 2014ussenioropen.com.
