Want to take in some fun free movies for your family or for you and your honey. Then check out what Tulsa has in store for this summer. Sometimes a movie fits the bill for a fun outing. These can be used as conversations starters to talk about deeper issues or values with your partner or children, etc. So there is a way to make them a bit more substantial as to meaning if you wish. And then there are times for just a fun evening out and not really thinking about any thing but a good laugh and spending time together. So here goes as to what I found for this summer.
