The Briscoe Western Art Museum presents its fifth annual summer film series, Warhol and the Western. The Briscoe Summer Film Series is inspired by Andy Warhol’s Cowboys & Indians suite, which portrays historical and mythic icons of the American West. The series was curated by Andrew Patrick Nelson, Assistant Professor of Film History and Critical Studies at Montana State University. Nelson will introduce each film and discuss connections between it and selected prints from the museum’s current "Warhol" exhibition. There will be food-truck fare, popcorn and free beer provided by Ranger Creek Brewing & Distilling. The lecture will be followed immediately by the film. The museum remains open to give moviegoers the chance to visit the galleries before and after each film.

  • June 19: The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance - Legend and fact meet head-to-head in director John Ford’s last great Western. An experienced gunman (John Wayne) and a tenderfoot lawyer (James Stewart) put aside their differences to combat a notorious outlaw (Lee Marvin).
  • July 17: Broken Arrow - A former Army scout (James Stewart) sets out to broker a peace treaty between white settlers and the Chiricahua Apaches.
  • August 21: Silverado - Released at the same nostalgic cultural moment as Warhol’s Cowboys & Indians, this energetic, reverential (and very ’80s) take on the Western from Lawrence Kasdan sees a group of misfit gunfighters bringing justice to a small frontier town. (Screening will be at Jack Guenther Pavilion)
