It’s been a while since Oklahoma experienced a mild August, and the cooler temperatures leave few excuses to avoid the park. But if the weather isn’t enough to convince you, maybe a fun action flick will. Sonic Summer Movie Nights on the Great Lawn of the Myriad Botanical Gardens, 301 W. Reno Ave., Oklahoma City, finds treasure with Pirates of the Caribbean, the 2003 hit featuring Johnny Depp’s toddling scamp, Jack Sparrow. Food trucks will be onsite Wednesday, Aug. 14, but feel free to bring your own picnic along with chairs and blankets. The series (Wednesdays at 9 p.m. throughout August) is free and open to the public.
Tulsa’s Guthrie Green will echo with the crack of a whip when it screens the 1981 classic Raiders of the Lost Ark at 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15. The first Indian Jones movie is a classic and still makes archaeology look fun. And who could forget melting Nazis? The screening is free. Bring your park blankets, snacks, chairs and good humor to 111 E. Brady St. arrive early and enjoy the pre-show live music.
