Tulsa Goes to the Movies: It's the 2019 Circle Cinema Film Festival
After debuting last year as part of the Circle Cinema's 90th birthday bash, the Circle Cinema Film Festival is back in 2019 with a rich assortment of films as well as various art, music, and cultural experiences. Our guests are Clark Wiens, a founder of the Circle Cinema Foundation, and Chuck Foxen, the film programmer at the Circle. They tell us about many of the films and special guests who come to Tulsa as a part of this gala festival, which happens from the 11th through the 15th. Highlights include "Bluebird" (2019), "Terlton" (2019), "Cole Justice" (1989), "Juice: How Electricity Explains the World" (2019), "American Heretics: Politics of the Gospel" (2018), and "Okies in Silent Film" (a series of silent one-reelers from the 1920s). Note that a full schedule of events and screenings for this festival can be found here. Also on our show today, as the summer-travel season rolls on, commentator Mark Darrah is thinking about roadside signage in Oklahoma -- both then and now.
