Free "Stake Land" screening in Arkville

Arkville — A free screening of the movie “Stake Land” will be the first event at The Arkville Cowdome.
The Arkville Cowdome will open its doors on Sunday, May 27 at 6 p.m. for a free screening of “Stake Land,” a motion picture that was filmed locally in 2010. Immediately after the screening, director Jim Mickle will answer questions about “Stake Land” and his current project; “We are What We Are,” another movie that is being shot in a number of local communities.

This will be the first of many films that will be shown at The Arkville Cowdome. In addition to movies, The Arkville Cowdome will host weddings and other banquets, concerts, dances, and when the weather cools down, indoor mini golf and possibly laser tag.

The Arkville Cowdome, located at the intersection of Route 28 and county Road 38 in Arkville, was most recently used for auctions, but was originally Todd’s Hall and was used for roller skating, music, dance, banquets, and sporting events. Milton Berle was among the stars who performed there frequently.

For more than half-a-century, the building was the home of Crosby Brothers Farm Supply. That’s one of the reasons for the name, The Arkville Cowdome.
The building is owned by Joe Moskowitz and Pauline Liu. Frank and Cherie Davis, owners of Cha Cha Hut BBQ, which is in the front of the building, will be actively involved in coordinating the events.
