OKG7 things to do
With “Thor” hitting theaters, it must be time for Free Comic Book Day!
With Hitchcock hitting theaters Friday (read our review), see how another legendary director paid tribute to the master of suspense at Oklahoma City Museum of Art, 415 Couch. At 5:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday, it screens The Bride Wore Black, Francois Truffaut’s 1968 thriller about a wedding-day widow taking revenge on the five men who killed her hubby. Admission is $5-$8. Call 236-3100 or visit okcmoa.com.
Dave Grohl’s not just a Foo Fighter. Now he’s a film director.
Sound City, his documentary on the historic L.A. recording studio of the same name, is set to screen locally once and once only: at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Harkins Bricktown Cinemas 16, 150 E. Reno. It’s scheduled for nowhere else in the state.
Fresh from its Jan. 18 premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, the film includes such music heavyweights as Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic, Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks, Rick Springfield, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor, Barry Manilow, Pixies’ Frank Black, producer Rick Rubin, Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, John Fogerty, Metallica’s Lars Ulrich and many, many more.

Plan one: Any self-respecting fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000 should go see the RiffTrax gang do its thing tomorrow night to Ed Wood’s Plan 9 from Outer Space. Not for nothing has the 1959 sci-fi turkey starring Bela Lugosi and Bela Lugosi’s chiropractor been dubbed the “worst movie ever made.”
The 7:30 p.m. Thursday showing isn’t live, but it was four years ago, and if you didn’t see it then, trust me: It was hilarious.
Or don’t trust me and see it yourself. That’s what I’m urging you to do, anyway, and you may do so at either AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, 2501 W. Memorial, or Tinseltown USA, 6001 N. Martin Luther King.
