Gathr Film Series begins tonight with '12 O'Clock Boys'

The Ron Robinson Theater begins a new film series tonight with a 7 p.m. screening of "12 O'Clock Boys," filmmaker Lotfy Nathan's hypnotic 2013 documentary highlighting Baltimore's dirt-bike subculture. The film will mark the first entry in an ongoing Thursday night program sponsored by Little Rock native and "Towncraft" director Richard Matson's Gathr Films, a film society dedicated to bringing independent, documentary, and foreign films to markets that are typically outside of the art cinema circuit. "People in L.A. and New York get to see every movie," Matson said over the phone today. "We're trying to create a new cultural event for Little Rock."

So far, Gathr is based in 12 cities, from Portland and Detroit to Tallahassee and Kansas City. Little Rock, though, remains the spiritual center of the thing: Arkansas Democrat-Gazette film critic Philip Martin will be leading post-screening discussions here that, in the future, will be broadcast online. One-month memberships can be purchased for  $19, and single screenings cost $10. Tonight's screening is free, though you should reserve a seat online. Upcoming screenings include "Adult World," "Next Goal Wins," and "The Forgotten Kingdom."
