Dead alive

And you need not take a road trip or forego showering.

Attention, Grateful Dead fans! Yes, you, with the VW van and the closet full of bootleg tapes!

Just a few hours from now — 7 p.m. to be exact — Jerry Garcia’s would-be 70th birthday will be recognized at two local theaters with a rare screening of the 1977 concert film The Grateful Dead Movie. This one-night-only event will be shown at Cinemark Tinseltown, 6001 N. Martin Luther King, and the Hollywood Spotlight 14, 1100 N. Interstate Drive in Norman.

Being a presentation of Fathom Events, there’s more to it than just the flick of the classic rock band at work. Bob Weir and other surprise guests join for a “special birthday commemoration” for Garcia, who died in 1995.
