The Little Rock Horror Picture Show, the fanged-and-betentacled sister film fest that sprang from the guts of the Little Rock Film Festival, is teaming up with the Central Arkansas Library System's Butler Center for Arkansas Studies near the River Market downtown to throw a screening and reception on January 31 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The event is open to the public, and will serve as an early sneak peek for the LR Horror Picture Show, which is scheduled for Feb. 17-19 at Market Street Cinema.

Attendees will be able to purchase passes for the Picture Show at the Butler Center event. We've previously reported about the lineup for the LRHPS here, here and here. Looks like it's gonna be a great time.

    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.
