Hot Springs film fest boasts strong early turnout despite venue change

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) - Despite a change in venue, the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival boasts a strong turnout in its first two days.

Film lovers converge on Hot Springs this week, but for those who've been to the festival before...they will notice a subtle venue change. For 20 years the Malco Theatre hosted the event, but Mother Nature decided to go against tradition.

A new location, the Arlington Hotel in downtown Hot Springs, will host between 5 and 10-thousand people according to Susan Altrui, chair of the board for the event. The Malco Theatre hosted the event for 20 years, but severe weather damaged the roof back in August.

"So far our numbers have been up. We've had well attended films. Our opening night was one of the biggest opening nights the festival has seen," says Altrui.

Altrui says the weather setback ultimately showed the versatility of Hot Springs.

New details on Little Rock Zoo dog attack

LITTLE ROCK (KTHV) - We are following up on one our most-viewed stories on our website: the dog attack at the Little Rock Zoo that killed five farm animals.

First off, we found out the two dogs came back to the zoo Thursday evening. But this time, they never got inside to harm anything. And while the dogs escaped, authorities say they got a closer look and a new description. 

"I'm just kind of scratching my head as far as what happened," said Terry Edwards of Little Rock.  

"I read it on the Internet and it was kind of shocking," said Meko Campbell of Little Rock said.  

"I just, I just can't believe something like that would happen," said Mary Beth Ray of Beebe.
