UACCM TO SHOW 'AVENGERS AGE OF ULTRON' FOR STARLIGHT CINEMA AUGUST 11

The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton will show “Avengers Age of Ultron” Tuesday, August 11, at the Starlight Cinema Back-to-School Bash. The free community-wide movie event will start at sundown, around 8:30 p.m., on the lawn outside the Fine Arts Auditorium at UACCM.

Attendees are encouraged to dress up like their favorite superhero for this family-friendly, back-to-school bash! A concession stand will open at 8:00 p.m. with free hot dogs, popcorn, and drinks while supplies last. The event is not ticketed, and guests should bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating. In case of inclement weather, the event will be moved indoors to the Fine Arts Auditorium.

This sequel to the smash-hit comic-book epic "The Avengers" finds the iconic superhero team dealing with a threat of their own making: a sentient robot called Ultron (voice of James Spader), who was originally designed as part of a peacekeeping program. Since the events of the last film, Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) have been working to take down various cells of a secret society of villains known as HYDRA. Their zeal to make the world a better, safer place inspires Tony Stark, genius billionaire and alter ego of Iron Man, to create Ultron in order to respond to additional threats that the Avengers aren't able to handle. Ultron, unfortunately, takes this directive way too seriously -- he believes that world peace can only be achieved by exterminating humanity, and he'll stop at nothing to accomplish this goal. The battle between the Avengers and Ultron is further complicated by the appearance of superpowered siblings Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), who ally themselves with the homicidal android. Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders co-star as, respectively, S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives Nick Fury and Maria Hill. Joss Whedon, writer and director of the previous Avengers movie, returns in both capacities here.
