The Murphy Arts District has announced their 2021 MADMovie Monday lineup scheduled for June 7th – August 9th. The event series is sponsored by the Medical Center of South Arkansas and is free to the public. Movies will start at sundown at the MAD Amphitheater.
A special presentation will be held the evening of Monday, June 14th as the Arkansas CinemaSociety (ACS) presents Raya and the Last Dragon, co-written by El Dorado native, Qui Nguyen. A Q+A session with Nguyen and El Dorado Film Festival Director Alexander Jeffrey will be aired prior to the movie that evening.
ACS Executive Director Kathryn Tucker is pleased to bring the film to El Dorado. “We are very excited to bring Raya and the Last Dragon to El Dorado and the Murphy Arts District,” said Tucker. “Highlighting Arkansas creatives is a big part of what we do.
