Raising Arizona

Friday, July 7 - Saturday, July 8, 2023

A cult favorite, RAISING ARIZONA tells the tale of a childless couple: an ex-con (Nicolas Cage) and an ex-cop (Holly Hunter) who won’t let a little thing like biology interfere with their family planning. Kidnapped quintuplet in tow, they plan to drive off into the tabula rasa of the Arizona desert. But a pair of escaped prisoners, a furniture store magnate — the baby’s father, and an outlaw biker cum bounty hunter complicate the scheme.
