Free movie viewing at Blue Air training facility

Trailer for the movie:

Blue Air Training is opening its hangar for a free movie night featuring “The Rock of Gibraltar,” which tells the story of the police hunt for criminal mind Deacon Marsh in Fort Smith in the 1930s.

The film was an audience favorite at the Made in Arkansas Film Festival and Fayetteville Film Festival, and won the Fort Smith Film Award at the 2021 Fort Smith International Film Festival.

The film’s director, Michael Farris, who grew up in Van Buren, said he admires the history of Fort Smith, as well as gangster films of the 1930s and 1940s.

“We are fortunate to have so many historic buildings and our city has been fantastic trying to preserve those buildings,” he said. “The owners were wonderful and grateful to let us shoot and the donated antique cars allowed us to sell the period in a way I (otherwise) couldn’t get enough of.”
