Riverdale 10 Theater reopens under new owner

Riverdale 10 Theater reopens under new owner

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - It was a big night on Friday for the owners of the Riverdale 10 movie theater, as they opened to the public for the first time since making major renovations.

"In the future we want to add food and we're going to add the food if we get our beer and wine permit," owner Matt Smith told THV. "We are a small neighborhood theater…locally owned, locally operated, and Arkansas based."

According to alcoholic beverage control board director Michael Langley, no mainstream theater in Arkansas has ever received an alcohol permit. Regal McCain Theaters in North Little Rock applied for one last year but it was denied. "There's a lot of people going in and out of that building at McCain Mall," Smith added. "It's in McCain Mall."

New Diamond Bear brewing location opening soon

New Diamond Bear brewing location opening soon

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The kegs are running low at Diamond Bear Brewing Company. We are looking at a shortage of the locally produced beer for a little while, but the silver lining is it is all part of a move to a bigger facility. Plus the promise of some new things to offer.

The new location is very close to opening, and they are hoping to start doing practice brews this week. The new spot will also have a restaurant. All the owner will say at this time is that it is going to open soon, and by the look of things, it is going to be really soon.

The name of Diamond Bear's new restaurant is the Arkansas Ale House. Right now, the menu is set, and they're experimenting with different ingredients to see what works best. One of the signature menu items is bratwurst.
