Cinema on the Bayou Film Society and Acadiana Center for the Arts are pleased to announce the 20th anniversary screening of “Dirty Rice” at a Red Carpet community celebration of this film made in the heart of Cajun country and steeped in Cajun culture.
Twenty years ago, on December 4, 1997, “Dirty Rice” had its World Premiere in Lafayette at the United Artist Theatre on Kaliste Saloom before an audience
of over 1200 people. This debut narrative feature film by acclaimed Cajun filmmaker Pat Mire, filmed in and around Eunice, Louisiana, was released
on United Artist screens throughout the state. To this day, “Dirty Rice” holds the record for the longest-running film to play in a Lafayette movie
theatre – it was booked for a two-week engagement and was held over for five months.
Tickets can be purchased at Acadiana Center for the Arts, calling AcA at 337-233-7060, or online at http://acadianacenterforthearts.org/dirty-rice-20th-anniversary-screening.
