Specialty cinema offerings this week include the story behind “Wonder Woman,” a Tulsa-flavored film festival, a new Bob Dylan documentary and “The Princess Bride” celebrating an anniversary.
“Professor Marston and the Wonder Women”: You’ve seen “Wonder Woman.” Now see the story behind her original comic-book creation by a Harvard psychologist and the controversies caused by its publication of feminist ideals and his unconventional marriage.
“Super Dark Times”: The synopsis for this new indie thriller: “Teenagers Zach and Josh have been best friends their whole lives, but when a gruesome accident leads to a cover-up, the secret drives a wedge between them and propels them down a rabbit hole of escalating paranoia and violence.”
Tulsa American Film Festival: This third annual event honoring Native American, indie and student filmmakers includes educational panels and after-parties nightly. Most events are at Circle Cinema for this festival that wraps up Sunday, with more information at tulsaamericanfilmfest.com.
“The Crazies”: The Circle’s “Graveyard Shift” gives a nod to the late George Romero with 10 p.m. Friday-Saturday screenings of his 1973 spreading-virus horror film.
“Broken Blossoms”: The Circle’s “Second Saturday Silents” series of monthly silent films continues with an 11 a.m. Saturday screening of this 1919 D.W. Griffith drama starring Lillian Gish, with live theater pipe organ accompaniment provided by the Sooner State Chapter of the American Theatre Organ Society.
“Trouble No More”: The Oklahoma premiere of this new Bob Dylan documentary is set for 7 p.m. Thursday in conjunction with the Bob Dylan Archive, from which exclusive concert footage will be shown following the film that documents the artist’s so-called “born again” period. Archive curator Michael Chaiken will introduce the film and moderate a post-film discussion with musician Steve Ripley, who played in Dylan’s band during a 1981 tour.
“Princess Bride 30th Anniversary”: The 1987 comedy-fantasy classic returns to the big screen, thanks to a Turner Classic Movies presentation. Showtimes are set for 2 and 7 p.m. Sunday and Wednesday at Cinemark Tulsa and Cinemark Broken Arrow.
