About Movies In The Park


Movies in the Park is a free outdoor movie series in Little Rock’s River
Market. The mission of Movies in the Park is help foster a sense of
community and enjoyment in downtown Little Rock and throughout Central
Arkansas by bringing people together to enjoy a movie in a unique setting
along the scenic banks of the Arkansas River.

Since its inception, we’ve always believed that Movies in the Park should be
free and open to everyone. We are grateful to all of our sponsors because
without their generosity, Movies in the Park wouldn’t be possible. If

always up for suggestions about how to make the series more enjoying, so
