The Kings of Summer

A well-seasoned dramedy.


Rod Lott
Tired of rules and overbearing parents, best buds Joe (Nick Robinson, TV's Melissa & Joey) and Patrick (Gabriel Basso, Super 8) decide they aren't going to take it anymore. Thus, The Kings of Summer run away from home and build one of their own from scrap material, deep into the woods where their folks cannot find them.

Summer Cinema Clinics

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

The saying goes, “Those who can’t do, teach.” But Gray Frederickson, Academy Award-winning producer (The Godfather trilogy, Apocalypse Now) and artist in residence at Oklahoma City Community College, excels at both. Frederickson and the Oklahoma Film Institute will host a series of three-day clinics in which you can learn the ins and outs of everything from script writing to cinematography. The clinics begin with motion picture production 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Thursday-Saturday at the Visual and Performing Arts Center on the OCCC campus, 7777 S. May Ave. Tuition for each clinic is $300. Call 682-7847 or visit

Earth to Echo

Earth to Echo desperately wants to be a summer blockbuster, mimicking those that came before it and did it better.


Aimee Williams
In cinema, there is a fine, often debatable line separating homage from imitation. Unquestionably, family-friendly sci-fi flick Earth to Echo is of the latter category.
