"Oklahoma" coming to Oklahoma Memorial Stadium

This Saturday night Oklahomans will not only have a chance to view the movie, "Oklahoma," on SoonerVision, but movie viewers will have an opportunity to bring blankets and sit on the grass field of the Oklahoma Sooners. OU will also have throwback prices for the concession stand items for the latest event in this year of honoring the "OU fans" to thank them for their support of the University of Oklahoma athletic teams.

Anyone who has attended any game at the stadium understands that you do not walk on the grass even following games. Saturday we will have an opportunity to not only walk on the field but sit there to watch the movie.

This will give everyone a break from politics for the evening! Great venue, great prices, and great way to meet more fans!

There is only ONE Oklahoma!
NORMAN, Okla. -- A movie night at Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium is coming as the next activity in the University of Oklahoma Athletics Department’s Year of the Fan celebration.

The event will be free and open to the public, and stadium concessions stands will feature throw-back prices. No outside food or drink will be permitted in the stadium.

Patrons may sit in the stands or bring a blanket and sit on the Owen Field turf. No lawn chairs or other types of seating will be permitted on the field. The stadium club and suites will not be open.
