Premier on Film Row art walk set

NORMAN — Attendees at this month’s Premiere on Film Row free art walk can help build a community Ofrenda, experience the district’s first-ever haunted house, enjoy a free outdoor screening of the movie “Beetlejuice” and watch street performances by traditional Aztec and Folklorico dance troupes from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday along West Sheridan Avenue between Dewey and Shartel avenues in downtown Oklahoma City.

Premiere on Film Row, sponsored by Fowler Honda, is a family and pet-friendly event on the third Friday of each month, yearround, featuring film screenings, live music, art exhibitions and gourmet food trucks.

This month’s theme is “Two Festivals, One Celebration.” Sheridan Avenue will be closed between Lee and Shartel avenues for street dance performances and the community Ofrenda, a traditional Dia de los Meurtos (Day of the Dead) altar created by local artist Alicia Smith.

A multi-chamber haunted house will be inside Dunlap Codding, 609 W. Sheridan Ave. The Dunlop Codding courtyard also will feature live music by the Howard Brady Band and a contemporary art exhibition by D.G. Smalling. There also will be bounce houses and face painting.

The Paramount, a coffee bar at 701 W. Sheridan Ave., will offer a free outdoor screening of “Beetlejuice” at 8 p.m. and is bringing back the PARK(ing) Day parklet concept by popular demand with “Frankenstein’s Lab.” There also will be a performance by RACE Dance Company.

The party inside Individual Artists of Oklahoma, a nonprofit art gallery at 706 W. Sheridan Ave., will feature a David Maxwell solo show, “Deep Six: Alternative Burial Chambers,” and music by DJ Bryan Boone.
