We’re getting old, you guys. OKC is about to turn 125, but we still know how to party (with birthday cake, obviously). Locals can attend an open house 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 200 N. Walker Ave., featuring history lessons, a Spokies bike history tour, tours of City Hall and, yes, birthday cake. Admission is free. Call 297-2578 or visit okc.gov. See our 125th Anniversary weekly series story on page 28. Also, check out our Spokies story on page 43.

Jodorowsky's Dune

David Lynch's Dune famously flopped in 1984, but according to a new documentary, the real story is how movie madman Alejandro Jodorowsky tried to do it first.

More than a few books exist on the topic of the greatest movie never made, and more often than not, they include visionary director Alejandro Jodorowsky’s proposed adaptation of Dune. Other incredible examples fill the pages — i.e. James Cameron’s Spider-Man, Stanley Kubrick’s Napoleon — but the aborted journey of Frank Herbert’s cult sci-fi novel to the big screen is the only one to earn its own documentary feature about what might have been.

Take a day off in OKC.


Features

Greg Horton
When the character Cameron Frye said, “Ferris Bueller, you’re my hero,” he was echoing the sentiments of a generation of young people who came of age in the 1980s.
