HSDFI SUMMER FILM SERIES
6 p.m., Malco Theater. Donations.

It'd be a shame not to utilize the historic Malco Theater in Hot Springs during those long, trying stretches between the end of the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival and the beginning of the next one. In that spirit, Dan Anderson, experimental filmmaker and new festival program director, has curated a summer film series in the old lion of a theater. Every Thursday evening through Aug. 5, the Malco lights up for a double feature fund-raiser to benefit the town's stalwart festival. Starting at 6 p.m., the organizers will screen a documentary hand-chosen by Anderson from the festival's 18,000-movie library, followed, at 8 p.m., by a "classic or alternative film." This week they feature Harrod Blank's "Automorphosis," a look at the eccentric world of "art cars," followed by the 1932 Tod Browning classic, "Freaks," a look at the eccentric world of, well, freaks in a circus. It's classic movies in a classic theater, all for a suggested donation of $5-$10. Visit hsdfi.org for information on upcoming shows.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
