On Monday, June 14th, participants are in for a special treat as the Arkansas Cinema Society (ACS) presents “Raya and the Last Dragon,” written by El Dorado native, Qui Nguyen.
“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. We are pleased to see an Arkansan like Qui Nguyen go on to do big things and work with Disney on such a fantastic film.”
Some movies scheduled to be shown are: “Honey I Shrunk the Kids”, “Napoleon Dynamite”, “Frozen” and “Rio 2”.
“We are starting to get back to “normal” but still advise patrons to stay safe by watching the movies with people in their own households. It’s easy to socially distance in the amphitheater and we encourage people to spread out as much as they can,” said MAD Marketing Coordinator, Joanna Benson.
