Mid-week spring storms were replaced by a beautiful weekend weather for Little Rock Film Festival’s first ever rooftop movie screening. The 1970 depression-era gangster flick “Bloody Mama” lit up the rooftop screen while stars took over a cloudless Little Rock night sky.

Robert Walden will be appearing as Willie Loman in the Little Rock Repertory Theater’s production of “Death of a Salesman” April 24th – May 12th. See pictures from the event HERE.
