HOT SPRINGS NATIONAL PARK, Arkansas — The fifth annual popular Movies At The Market series of free family-friendly flicks has begun at the Farmers Market, 121 Orange Street next to Transportation Plaza and will run each Thursday evening through June 27 plus a postponed movie on July 11. 

The free outdoor movies are being shown at dusk every Thursday in June. 

The series continues Thursday evening [June 13] with the Disney Original “The Little Mermaid,” sponsored by Oaklawn Racing Casino Resort. It stars Jodi Benson, Samuel E. Wright and Rene Auberjonois. It is an animated romp, in which rebellious 16-year-old mermaid Ariel (Jodi Benson) is fascinated with life on land. On one of her visits to the surface, which are forbidden by her controlling father, King Triton, she falls for a human prince. Determined to be with her new love, Ariel makes a dangerous deal with the sea witch Ursula (Pat Carroll) to become human for three days. But when plans go awry for the star-crossed lovers, the king must make the ultimate sacrifice for his daughter.

The lawn area where the movies will be screened opens to the public at 7:30 p.m. each Thursday. The movies will start at 8:30 p.m. or at sunset. 

There is no charge for admission and concessions will be available for sale. Fans are invited to bring blankets, lawn chairs and coolers. No glass containers will be allowed. No smoking is permitted. 

Security — uniformed and non-uniformed — is provided. Excess noise during the show will bring an invitation to leave. Pets are allowed if on a leash, but disruptive pets and their owners will be asked to leave. Bring bug spray, as there will not be any insecticide sprayed by the organizers.
