OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – One of the Oklahoma History Center’s most popular exhibits is scheduled to close at the end of the month.

"Oklahoma (at) the Movies," which celebrates the contributions of Oklahomans to the motion picture industry, will close on Dec. 31.

The exhibit has been open to the public since May 2012 in conjunction with the development of the Oklahoma Museum of Popular Culture in Tulsa. The Inasmuch Foundation awarded the Oklahoma History Center a $250,000 grant to develop it and focus on a number of Oklahomans who have worked in front of or behind the camera.

Thousands of patrons have viewed the exhibit containing artifacts and stories about Oklahomans who have created movie magic such as Joan Crawford, Gene Autry, Hopalong Cassidy, Tom Mix, Tony Randall, James Garner and many more.
