     Lunar New Year is celebrated by many Asian cultures. Its beginning is marked by the first new moon on the lunar calendar, which typically occurs between
     January 21 and February 20. Called Tet by the Vietnamese, Chunjie by the Chinese, Solnal in Korean, and Losar in Tibetan, the event lasts for several days,     
     concluding on the first full moon of the lunar calendar.

   Report on dedication mass for Blessed Stanley Rother, February 17, 2023


                                          
                                           Despite altering the dedication date, there were pews that had not arrived or been installed, although they had hoped the
                                           interior of  the Rother Shrine Church would be finished in time for his entombment.

                                           The next steps will be to move the Oklahoma City Archdioceses Cathedral from the Cathedral of Our Lady of Perceptual Help
                                           to the 2,000 seat Blessed Rother Shrine Church in Oklahoma City with eventual application to Vatican City to make the Blessed
                                           Stanley Rother Shrine Church to become an official Basilica with hopes that the final miracle can be substantiated to make
                                           Blessed Stanly Rother 'St. Stanley Rother."

                                           Once he becomes St. Stanley Rother, the Shrine will have to be renamed.

                                           Holy Angels Catholic Church has been closed in south Oklahoma City.  The two parishes will be combined as 'Sacred Heart Parish
                                           and the two congregations will make up the Rother Shrine Church.

       The Tulsa King

Paramount Plus Series Starring Sylvester Stallone Will Film In Tulsa & Oklahoma City


Taylor Sheridan (Yellowstone) is producing a scripted drama for the Paramount network called The Tulsa King starring Sylvester Stallone.

The story is about an older gangster who served time to protect mafia bosses then relocates to Tulsa after prison and starts his own mob crew. Filming has been taking place in OKC and Tulsa. Stallone has been sighted at Penn Square Mall and other places around the state.

Just saw that they will be filming at this empty saloon at 4120 Newcastle Road. Permit is for a new sign to be placed on the building throughout filming.--OKCTalk.com--04-22-2022.

Also being shot at Prairie Surf Media Studios, Oklahoma City.  Full link:  https://www.poncacitynow.com/paramount-plus-series-starring-sylvester-stallone-will-film-in-tulsa-oklahoma-city/


I guess they can go back to calling it "Kansas City King" since it decided not to have anything to do with production in Tulsa or Oklahoma.  Not that there was anything to do with Tulsa in the first place.

I watched 3 or 4 episodes and just didn't get into it. I also didn't really care for the way it tries to show Tulsa as part of the story in general. It just missed the mark. If you're going to do a show and call it "Tulsa King" at least get a good portion of Tulsa right for crying out loud.

Granted I'm a bit jaded about movies filmed in Tulsa. SE Hinton did the best job of using Tulsa as a backdrop for Tex, The Outsiders and Rumble Fish. Granted she is a native and I think that helped in developing the feel of those movies. I'd also include Weird Al's UHF.

From the Dallas Morning Snews:

Quote
Could it have anything to do with the hot weather? Possibly.

Taylor Sheridan’s Tulsa King is reportedly pulling up stakes from Oklahoma, and filming elsewhere for its second season on the Paramount+ series. Rachel Cannon, founder and co-CEO of Oklahoma City-based production company Prairie Surf Media confirmed to The Oklahoman that the production won’t return to film in Oklahoma.

Tulsa King star Sylvester Stallone took aim at the heat — or maybe Oklahoma in general — on Instagram.

“Being in Oklahoma has definitely prepared me for a lifetime in hell if I ever got sent there,” Stallone wrote in an exchange with comedian Andrew Dice Clay on July 24.

If it was the weather, Oklahoma City’s daytime temperature was higher than 90 degrees on 24 days in July, according to Weather.com. Tulsa was hotter hitting at least 100 degrees on 18 days. July was the most oppressive part of Tulsa King’s three-month filming period.

Co-star Barry Corbin noted the heat, too, comparing it to Dallas-Fort Worth’s.

“It’s no worse than it is here, but it’s miserable here, too,” Corbin said in July.

Season one showrunner Terence Winter told the Tulsa World last week that he and the crew had no idea how hot it would be.

“I don’t think anybody did,” Winter said. “When we first got there, it was freezing and then, within days, it was 106 degrees and then stayed that way for like five months. You guys are probably used to that, but we were like, ‘What the hell just happened?’”

Most filming took place in Oklahoma City because of sound stage availability, Winter said.

Paramount+ has not announced when or where filming is expected to begin for the series’ second season.

Tulsa King could be the first major Sheridan project to move from the region in which it’s set.

101 Studios, which produces Tulsa King, is headquartered in Beverly Hills.

Jeanette Stanton, director of the Oklahoma Film + Music Office, told The Oklahoman the show has not resubmitted its application for the state film incentive.

“After they [were] renewed, they did not contact our office about filming Season 2 here,” she said.

In Tulsa King, Stallone stars as Dwight “The General” Manfredi, a 75-year-old New York gangster newly released after serving a 25-year prison sentence. Manfredi is banished by his former boss’ son to Tulsa, where he sets out to establish a new criminal empire.

Tulsa King is one of several projects in the works by Sheridan, the Weatherford resident who co-created Yellowstone and its sequels. It’s the largest scripted television series to be produced in Oklahoma using the incentives under the Filmed in Oklahoma Act of 2021, The Oklahoman reported.

Sheridan has done filming for Yellowstone in 1883 in the Fort Worth area. His latest project, 1883: The Bass Reeves Story, is being filmed in North Texas.

Stanton said Tulsa King will leave a mark on the state’s film industry.

“There’s so much wonderful content being made [here], and we’re not suffering at all for applications,” she said. “Oklahoma’s definitely on everybody’s map.”
