Greetin’ Keaton

Four-time Academy Award nominee Diane Keaton is headed to the Civic Center.

Well, la-di-dah, la-di-dah: Oscar-winning actress Diane Keaton — star of such classics as Annie Hall, The Godfather trilogy and Reds — is coming to Oklahoma City. Next month, she’ll serve as the keynote speaker at Integris Health’s 26th annual Women’s Health Forum.

According to a press release, Keaton “will reveal how to be fearless.” (My educated-guess answer: Have millions of dollars to fall back on.)

The event is free, but reservations are required, at 951-2277, and you know this will fill up fast. Her speech is slated for 5 p.m. Sept. 9 at Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker. —Rod Lott

You’re going to need a bigger boat ... again!

Six bona fide movie classics are headed back to Cinemark Tinseltown.

One of my 10 favorite movies of all time, space and dimension, Jaws, is not only debuting on Blu-ray on Tuesday, but soon will re-surface on the big screen at Cinemark Tinseltown, 6001 Martin Luther King.

The supreme shark flick to end all shark flicks kicks off the Cinemark Fall Classic Series, which features digitally restored prints of half a dozen classic films, Oscar winners all. Each will play for one Thursday only, with showings at 2 and 7 p.m. Here’s the schedule:

Jaws (1975), Aug. 23
High Noon (1952), Aug. 30
Doctor Zhivago (1965), Sept. 6
Chinatown (1974), Sept. 13
The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957), Sept. 20
• The African Queen (1951), Sept. 27

Tickets are just $4-$6, and on sale now at cinemark.com. —Rod Lott
