You can’t eat breakfast at Tiffany’s, but you can enjoy the classic film and have a picnic supper tonight in Riverfront Park. Movies in the Park presents the 1961 classic Blake Edwards film tonight at dusk.
Based on Truman Capote’s novella, the film was one of Audrey Hepburn’s iconic roles. Joining her in the cast were George Peppard, Patricia Neal, Martin Balsam, Buddy Ebsen and Mickey Rooney. The film features the famous song “Moon River” which Hepburn sings at one point in the movie. (Audiences at Movies in the Park may be able to see the moon reflected on the Arkansas River at some point in the evening.)
The film was nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Actress (Hepburn), Best Adapted Screenplay (George Axelrod) and Best Art Direction. It won the Oscars for Best Song – “Moon River” (Johnny Mercer and Henry Mancini) and Best Score (Mancini again).
Movies in the Park is a free outdoor movie series in Little Rock’s River Market. They take place at the First Security Amphitheatre. The mission of Movies in the Park is help foster a sense of community and enjoyment in downtown Little Rock and throughout Central Arkansas by bringing people together to enjoy a movie in a unique setting along the scenic banks of the Arkansas River.
The movie will start tonight at dark. Visitors are welcome to bring picnics but please no glass containers and pick up afterwards. Those choosing not to bring their own picnic, Riverfront Park does have concessions available for sale.
Bring bug spray, picnic and family and have a good time!
The Little Rock Convention and Visitors Bureau Technical Services department provides all the equipment for the movies.
