PART OF THIRD THURSDAYS

The Mississippi Museum of Art and the Crossroads Film Society present an outdoor film series on the BankPlus Green in The Art Garden. This month's movie is The Straight Story. Cost: Free, cash bar

About the film:
Directed by David Lynch | A retired farmer and widower in his 70s, Alvin Straight (Richard Farnsworth) learns one day that his distant brother Lyle (Harry Dean Stanton) has suffered a stroke and may not recover. Alvin is determined to make things right with Lyle while he still can, but his brother lives in Wisconsin, while Alvin is stuck in Iowa with no car and no driver's license. Then he hits on the idea of making the trip on his old lawnmower, thus beginning a picturesque and at times deeply spiritual odyssey.
