It’s a mystery ...

Ssshhhh! Secret blockbuster to screen for charity next week.

One of summer’s most-anticipated films yet to be released is screening early for charity, and you’re invited! Just don’t expect what to know for sure what you’re seeing until the lights go down.

At 6 p.m. Aug. 7 at Harkins Bricktown Cinemas, 150 E. Reno, Citizens Caring for Children hosts “A Night at the Movies.” For a $50 ticket, not only do you gain admission, but get treated to hors d’oevures (or “snacks,” if you don’t speak fancy), drinks, popcorn, swag bags and the opportunity to take part in a silent auction featuring movie memorabilia.

It’s all for a good cause, as CCC is a nonprofit organization that provides shoes, clothes, books, school supplies and more to Oklahoma foster children. All proceeds from the event directly benefit the organization, so call 753-4099 or visit citizenscaringforchildren.org to secure your ticket.

But to play detective, if the “pre-screening of one of this summer's blockbuster hits” claim is legit, my money’s on The Bourne Legacy, for three reasons:
1. The movie opens three days later.
2. There's a press screening of Legacy scheduled at Harkins that night.
3. One of its producers, Frank Marshall, is no stranger to doing good deeds for Oklahoma charities. Remember when he brought Matt Damon to town for the premiere of the last Bourne movie?

Hey, that’s just my guess. I possess no insider knowledge. If I’m wrong, then my alternate pick is ParaNorman, because I can’t picture a charity going gung-ho for The Expendables 2. As cool as that would be. —Rod Lott
