“Dogpatch: An Average Stone-Age Community” — Saturday, May 19, 2018 at 2pm — #FilmsAtTheLyric!

Jeff Carter Productions New Documentary:
Dogpatch: An Average Stone-Age Community
Saturday, May 19 at 2:00PM

Jeff Carter Productions will present a new documentary on “the history, excitement and entertainment that was, and is, Dogpatch, USA” at Harrison, Arkansas’s historic Lyric Theater on Saturday, May 19, 2018, at 2:000PM. Tickets are available in advance for $11.83 (tax and fees included).

Dogpatch, the fictional village from the comic strip, Li’l Abner, is a place described by its creator, Al Capp, as, “an average stone-age community.” A place nestled in a valley where a simple life is encouraged, it is home to the Yokum family, (Abner, Mammy, Pappy and Tiny), Daisy Mae, Marryin’ Sam, Moonbeam McSwine, Available Jones, the Shmoo, and many others.

The hollow at Marble Falls seemed the perfect location for such a place to exist…just far enough away from the “fast-paced civilization” of the Greater Harrison Metropolitan Area (with its populous suburbs of Little Rock, Tulsa, Springfield, St. Louis, and Kansas City), so Dogpatch, USA was created there as a place to get away from the hussle and bustle and see and meet characters from the praised and highly followed comic strip. In Jeff Carter’s film, he explores the history, excitement and entertainment that was—and is—Dogpatch, USA.

With a film premiere event on Friday night at the Durand Center (tickets available for $32.84, tax and fees included), the film will have a matinee showing at Harrison’s original home for the talkies, the 1929 Lyric Theater at 2:00 on Saturday, May 19 (tickets available for $11.83, tax and fees included).
