With concerts put on pause for the time being, Metroplex Live is switching gears to bring us outdoor movies on the big screen. The first screening, sponsored by the Arkansas Cinema Society, will be a thoroughly Arkansas film — "Antiquities." The screening is set for this Saturday, May 23, with gates opening at 8 p.m. and the show starting at 8:45 p.m. at 7318 Wind Song Drive in North Little Rock.
The movie is free, but donations will be accepted at the gate. Per social distancing rules, only 40 cars will be allowed in. Masked bathroom attendants will disinfect the bathrooms after use and concessions will be delivered to your car. VIP parking spots are available for a $20 donation.
A quirky approach to an offbeat tale, Antiquities delivers a touching story of a man who steps into the shoes of his deceased father to learn more about himself. His father's death prompts Walt to move into his aunt and uncle's home and even start working his dad's old job, in an attempt to feel closer to him.
