Will Rogers Afternoon Frolic at Circle Cinema

April 6, 11 a.m.1 p.m.

Event Navigation

The Will Rogers Memorial Museum and Circle Cinema have teamed up to present Will Rogers Afternoon Frolic on Saturday, April 6. The afternoon includes a double feature of Will Rogers films, lunch with Ike’s Chili, and roping demonstrations. Doors open at 11 a.m., and the movies start at 1 p.m.

The chosen films are Steamboat Round the Bend (1935), followed by the silent movie The Ropin’ Fool (1922), accompanied by a live organ played by Bill Rowland. Before showtime, visitors can make their own rope and learn a rope trick while viewing original movie posters and behind-the-scenes images shot on the set of the films. Lunch will be available for purchase from Ike’s Chili.

To create an event that embodies Will Rogers’s spirit, Ike’s Chili will have Frito chili pie available for lunch. Ike’s was one of Will Rogers’s personal favorites. Will Rogers often talked about his love of chili, or Chili Con Carne as he called it. While recovering from surgery, he wrote, “I sure do love my chili. If I could have just bogged down to a few bowls of good old greasy chili, I would have been well in a week.”

Special ticket pricing for this event is $7 for adults and $5 for children. Tickets can be purchased by clicking here or the Circle Cinema box office located at 10 S. Lewis Ave., Tulsa.
