Virtual BingoFlix: Made in Arkansas May! White Lightning (1973, PG)

Join us for Virtual BingoFlix: Made in Arkansas May! Play bingo along to cheesy movie cliches during a virtual watch party for your chance to win a free movie pass to the theater once we reopen. This month we’re celebrating the 2021 Made in Arkansas Film Festival by screening films made in Arkansas!

On Tuesday, May 11, join us for White Lightning (1973, PG)! Set in fictional Bogan County, Arkansas, White Lightning was shot in several locations throughout the central part of the state and includes many recognizable landmarks, particularly in Benton. Upon hearing of his brother’s murder, Gator McKlusky (Burt Reynolds), who at the outset of the film is in prison for bootlegging, agrees to work for the federal government in an attempt to bring charges against Bogan County’s corrupt sheriff, J. C. Connors (Ned Beatty). While the government is interested in finding evidence of tax fraud against Connors, who derives income from the county’s illegal stills, McKlusky is motivated by personal revenge, as he knows Connors was behind his brother’s murder.
