EMOBA exhibit solving lost memories

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- We're continuing our celebration of Black History month with a look at how Arkansans shaped the African American culture.

There is a lot of history and preservation of the African American heritage at EMOBA. And a new exhibit is in the works called "Unsolved Memories".

They are asking you to bring in your old photos hoping to link together unknown family members and friends.

Arkansans with African American heritage are celebrating their ancestors throughout the month of February for breaking through racial barriers and trail blazing their own success. Ernie Dodson said, "Behind each person, I believe, that the foundation is the family."

Update: Pine Bluff Council strikes down public vote on club hours

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Pine Bluff nightclubs will stay open until 5 a.m. unless enough signatures are gathered to let the voters decide.

City Council members struck down an ordinance with a 6 to 2 vote last night that would have allowed residents to choose clubs' hours of operation through a special election.

If a special election is held, there would be no cost to tax payers because the question would be added to the May primary election. 
 

Today's Box Office: Robocop and About Last Night

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- THV Film Critic Jonathan Nettles on a romantic movie and not so romantic movie hitting theaters this weekend.

This Valentine's Day weekend is all about remaking movies from the mid-80's. The first one is a rehash of  Robocop which is one of the most violent movies ever made. In terms of the science fiction/action movie genre, it's considered a classic. Paul Verhoeven's 1987 film was a satire of corporate America and corrupt politicians featuring extreme violence, lots of curse words, and a general statement on poverty and the war on crime. 2014's Robocop has been turned into a PG-13 actioner with a lack of satire and more focus on the man in the machine than the machine itself.

Today's Box Office: The Monuments Men

The word I would use to describe The Monuments Men is disappointing. It's an interesting premise based on the true story of a small group of art enthusiasts who are sent by the U.S. Army to find, protect, and return European works of art that have been stolen by the Nazi's in World War 2. While it is a story that you probably have never heard and was a pretty important mission, George Clooney as director just didn't deliver in telling a compelling story.
