CALS Announces Not-Quite-Holiday Film Fest

It’s a wonderful life, unless you happen to find yourself in Nakatomi Tower on Christmas Eve. The Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) Ron Robinson Theater, 100 Rock Street in Library Square, has announced the lineup for its series of holiday films, the Not-Quite-Holiday Film Fest, running from Tuesday, November 27, through Thursday, December 20. Each film starts at 6:30 p.m. and admission is $5.
