Midwest movies

‘How to’ see free flicks outdoors this summer.

Midwest City, home to Hollywood’s brightest stars!

Well, every Sunday night through Aug. 12, that is. Thanks to the Midwest City Parks and Recreation Department, the community now has Sunset Cinema, a free, outdoor movie series to call its own, beginning 20 minutes after the sun slowly dips below the horizon, like a lover waving goodbye.

While the series began last night with The Muppets, plenty of other titles await your blankets and lawn chairs at Charles J. Johnson Central Park Town Center, 7209 S.E. 29th.

• June 10, Puss in Boots
• June 17, Top Gun
• June 24, How to Train Your Dragon
• July 1, Despicable Me
• July 8, Megamind
• July 15, Madagascar
• July 22, Cars
• July 29, Secretariat
• Aug. 5, Gnomeo & Juliet
• Aug. 12, Grease

Fun fact: Two of those selections star America’s most famous Scientologists. For more information, call 739-1293 or visit midwestcityok.org/sunset-cinemas. —Rod Lott

Myriad Gardens is a dream come true


Commentary

James Tolbert
Dean McGee’s dream of a “garden in the city” combining numerous entertainment and cultural venues in the midst of a glorious garden in the center of downtown Oklahoma City simply took my breath away, so I accepted an appointment as trustee of the Myriad Gardens and worked to accomplish his vision.
