Splice Microcinema announces upcoming lineup ... in the form of a word search

Any film fans who were at Splice Microcinema's screening of "The Trial" Wednesday night were thrilled to hear that the group would be announcing its next twelve film screenings. Unfortunately there's a catch, and the catch is that you have to locate them yourself in this arduous word search. According to their Facebook page, the "first person to comment the titles of all 12 films gets one of our limited edition Splice T-shirts."

The alternative / underground screening series has been an incredibly cool addition to the sparse Little Rock cinema landscape, and they also announced that they'd be relocating  the series (beginning next month) from Vino's to a brand new, collaborative art & design space above Lulav called Few. No word yet on whether beer and pizza will be available at the new spot. 

About that word search — we're also given three hints: "(1) three of the films are relatively short & will be programmed alongside other works, (2) one film has no business being in a word search because, well, it isn't a word. Look closely within the puzzle for a giveaway. (3) as usual, all films will be projected on old 16mm film—so Transformers 6 unfortunately isn't one of them." Good luck, be quick and drop your results on their Facebook post before anyone else does.

    July 17, 2015
    Buried in a news item yesterday about the movie "Lego Batman," The Hollywood Reporter mentioned offhandedly that actor Michael Cera has acquired the rights to "Masters of Atlantis," the brilliant, absurdist cult-farce by Little Rock author Charles Portis.

    June 19, 2015
    I'm late to this, but Deadline Hollywood has reported that Little Rock native Jeff Nichols ("Mud," "Take Shelter") has settled on his next project, a film he wrote and will direct titled "Loving." Inspired by the documentary "The Loving Story," the film is to be based on the story of the couple, Mildred and Richard Loving, who instigated the landmark 1967 Supreme Court decision in Loving v.

  • Come watch Hitchcock's 'North by Northwest' with us Thursday at Ron Robinson

    June 15, 2015
    With spies, triple crosses, an icy blonde, mistaken identity, a murderous biplane and Cary Grant wearing the most dirt-repelling gray suit in all of film history, Hitchcock's 1959 thriller "North By Northwest" may well have invented the modern thriller, and it's still a hell of a good time at the movies. Now's your chance to see it on the big screen, with this week's Thursday night screening at Little Rock's Ron Robinson Theater, part of the Arkansas Times film series. /more/
