HOT SPRINGS NATIONAL PARK, Arkansas — The Disney classic, “The Little Mermaid,” is Thursday night’s presentation in the fifth annual Movies At The Market free family-friendly movie series at the Farmers Market on Orange Street next to the Transportation Depot. 

The movie is sponsored by Oaklawn Racing Casino Resort. It stars Jodi Benson, Samuel E. Wright and Rene Auberjonois.

In Disney's beguiling animated romp, 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 Movies At The Market series will run each Thursday evening at dusk through July 11. The remaining schedule is:

  • Thursday, June 20 – Avengers: Infinity War
  • Thursday, June 27 – Mary Poppins Returns
  • Thursday, July 11 – Ralph Breaks the Internet (Rescheduled from June 6) 

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.
