Movies in the Park announces schedule 

Movies in the Park announced the 2011 lineup for its very popular — and free! — summer movie series this week. Shows start at dusk on June 1 at the Riverfest Amphitheatre.

Looks like a pretty good slate of flicks, with old faves ("Ghostbusters," "Dirty Dancing"), kids' fare ("How to Train Your Dragon," "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory") and newish hits ("The Hangover," "True Grit"). For those wondering which version of Rooster Cogburn will show up — the Duke or the Dude — it's Bridges, dude.

More and more details are trickling out about this year's Little Rock Film Festival. Joe Berlinger, director and producer of the "Paradise Lost" West Memphis Three documentaries, will be on hand for a showing of the first film. He will also be featured as part of a panel discussion on the media and the West Memphis Three.

"Smokey and the Bandit," the 1977 film starring Burt Reynolds, will close out the festival with a Movies in the Park showing. Hal Needham, the film's director, will be in attendance. Needham will sign copies of his book, "Stuntman!: My Car-Crashing, Plane-Jumping, Bone-Breaking, Death-Defying Hollywood Life." He will also be honored at the LRFF gala for his lifetime's work as a stuntman and director. Stay tuned to Rock Candy for future LRFF announcements.

Friends and family of Luke Hunsicker, a local musician and artist who died of brain cancer last year, will host an art show to benefit the Lucas Clayton Hunsicker Scholarship Fund. The installment will be held at the THEA Center for the Arts in North Little Rock from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. Thursday, May 26, and showcase Hunsicker's works. Admission is $10. All proceeds from the event will go to the scholarship fund, which provides a yearly stipend to a Parkview High School senior planning to pursue education in the arts.

  • Fake economics

    Fake news is a new phenomenon in the world of politics and policy, but hokey economic scholarship has been around as long as Form 1040 and is about as reliable as the news hoaxes that enlivened the presidential campaign.

  • Woeful

    On Thanksgiving night, Bret Bielema could settle into his bed knowing that after a rather miserable 2013 inauguration, he had slipped comfortably into his job and the results were bearing some small but edible fruits for this ravenous fan base. He was only 25-24, but 18-10 with two bowl wins over his last 28 contests, a smattering of takedowns of ranked teams, and a stabilized roster that showed off the staff's endeavors to enlist and develop a caliber of player that would lead to better days ahead in a rugged conference.
