Electric Nostalgia

Seats 196
A young woman is haunted by visions of a faceless man after she is awoken from the dead in a body that is not her own.

ELECTRIC NOSTALGIA is the first feature film from writer/director/cinematographer Jacob Burns, and a perfect culmination of the vision and storytelling he has honed over the years with his outstanding short films, several of which played deadCenter.

Burns produced the film with long time collaborators Vinnie Hogan and Zach Burns. Hogan is an Austin based, Oklahoma born filmmaker with several deadCenter films under his belt and another feature in the works. Zach Burns is Jacob’s brother, a fine arts photographer and co-host of the webs series TALKIES.

Shot in gorgeous black and white, ELECTRIC NOSTALGIA features outstanding performances from Lauren Analla, Stephen Goodman, Page Tudyk and several actors who have graced our screens before and continue to delight in this latest science fiction drama. We are thrilled to World Premiere this beautiful film from one of Oklahoma’s most talented filmmakers.

District Up!

Seats 160

The Plaza District, Film Row, Paseo, Western Avenue, and H&8th. Each of these Oklahoma City districts may have a unique history and aesthetic, but they also have something in common: over the past few years they all have experienced a revival with the creation of regular events that bring businesses, neighbors, and "outsiders" together.

 

This feature-length documentary shares stories and advice on district revitalization throughout Oklahoma City from the people who helped create positive change in their communities and want to inspire others to do the same.

Great Plains

Seats 266

GREAT PLAINS is a dramatic thriller about a mother and her boy running from a violent, abusive step dad. The film is directed by Blair Hayes (BUBBLE BOY) and filmed on location in Oklahoma.  

Tara Buck Pierce (TRUE BLOOD) stars as a tough Oklahoma cowgirl trying to raise and protect her son Kipp, played by newcomer Spencer Mabrey. After her new husband Tommy violently attacks her one too many times, she grabs Kipp and escapes, driving west down the old country roads - with dreams of California and starting over. 

The journey proves more challenging than she expected, and Murel turns to her Aunt Tess, played by Beth Grant (NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, HEARTLAND). Meanwhile, Tommy relentlessly calls her, trying to convince her to come home and give him another chance. It looks as though she may give in, until secrets about Tommy’s relationship with Kipp are revealed. Horrified at what Tommy has done to her son, Murel realizes there’s more at stake than just her own safety, and runs harder and faster to keep Kipp away from danger. Saving herself was easy, but saving her son will be harder than she ever imagined.
