NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Update: After the first event was postponed due to rain, the Arkansas Cinema Society has moved the event and added an extra showing, one at 8:30pm and another at 11pm. Only 40 cars are allowed for each showing and you can reserve a spot for $20. Otherwise, it's first come, first serve.


With the COVID-19 pandemic impacting movie theaters along in Arkansas, Metroplex Live and the Arkansas Cinema Society are getting creative by opening up a free drive-in movie event.

Metroplex Live announced on Facebook that its 40’ x 22’ screen and drive-in setup will show an Arkansas film — "Antiquities." 

The movie is free, but donations will be accepted at the gate. VIP parking spots are available for a $20 donation.

Per social distancing rules, only 40 cars will be allowed in, so there will be limited space. Gates will open at 8 p.m. and the show starts at 8:45 p.m. at 7318 Wind Song Drive in North Little Rock.
