Danny O’Connor of the Outsiders House Museum announced that a VIP ribbon-cutting ceremony and dinner with Howell and special guests will take place Friday, Aug. 9. Bus tours of “The Outsiders” filming locations will be available during the evening and passengers will be accompanied by Howell, who played Ponyboy Curtis in the movie adaptation of S.E.
