ADA, Okla. -- The Chickasaw Nation will offer three family movie experiences, open to the public at no charge, in south central Oklahoma this September. Locations include Boggy Depot, Tishomingo and Sulphur.

“Moana” at Boggy Depot State Park

“Moana” will be shown 7 p.m., Friday, Sept. 15, at the Boggy Depot ballpark, 475 S. Park Lane. This outdoor movie showing will include hotdogs, popcorn and refreshments.

In this Disney animation, Moana Waialiki sets off on an epic journey across the Pacific to set things right on her island in Ancient Polynesia. Along the way she encounters Maui, who teaches Moana to sail. On their adventures, the two learn about the power of persistence and faith.

To get to the ballpark, take State Highway 7 east of Wapanucka, turn south on Park Lane and travel four miles.


“Dr. Strange” at Tishomingo

As part of the Chickasaw Nation Annual Meeting and Festival, an outdoor showing of “Dr. Strange” will hit the big screen 7 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 30, in Tishomingo at the Chickasaw National Capitol Building, 411 W. Ninth St. Popcorn and refreshments will be served. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets.

“Dr. Strange” follows a talented neurosurgeon, Dr. Stephen Strange, as he explores a hidden world of mysticism in order to cure wounds he sustains during a car accident. In the process, Dr. Strange learns he is capable of metaphysical abilities, which he uses to protect others.


“Pearl” at Sulphur

“Pearl” will be shown 6:30 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 30, in Sulphur at the Chickasaw Cultural Center’s Ataloa Theater as part of the Chickasaw Nation Annual Meeting and Festival.

It is the inspiring true story of Pearl Carter Scott, who grew up in Marlow, Oklahoma in the late 1920s. As a young Chickasaw girl, she overcomes numerous obstacles and rises above adversity to become the youngest licensed pilot in American aviation history.
