Movies at MacArthur - Sep '24)


Join Little Rock Parks & Recreation for the "Movies at MacArthur" series, a cinematic experience held at the historical Museum of Arkansas Military History in collaboration with AETN and Arkansas PBS. This ongoing program promises a blend of entertainment, education, and community with fellow history buffs. These curated films will be complemented with refreshments and healthy discussion, elevating the experience for a memorable night at the Museum!

Featured Film: My Lai (84 minutes)

What drove a company of American soldiers — ordinary young men from around the country — to commit one of the worst atrocities in American military history? Were they “just following orders” as some later declared? Or, did they break under the pressure of a vicious war in which the line between enemy soldier and civilian had been intentionally blurred?  This documentary focuses on the 1968 My Lai massacre, its subsequent cover-up, and the heroic efforts of the soldiers who broke ranks to try to halt the atrocities and then bring them to light.

"Movies at MacArthur" is not just about entertainment or education; it's a celebration of this historic community and an opportunity to enjoy the unique setting of the Museum. As a valued member of the community, your presence will add to the warmth and vibrancy of this event. To be part of this cinematic series, simply join us at the Museum and immerse yourself in conversation, camaraderie, and the magic of the silver screen. No RSVP required—just come and enjoy!
