The film is free with museum general admission and as always, museum members enjoy the museum and movie for free. Popcorn, candy and food truck grub are available to enjoy in the museum’s drafthouse-style theater and enjoy free beer courtesy of Ranger Creek Brewing.

Schedule of events

  • May 30: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid - Wyoming, early 1900s. Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid are the leaders of a band of outlaws. After a train robbery goes wrong, they find themselves on the run with a posse hard on their heels. Their solution – escape to Bolivia.
  • June 20: Little Big Man - Jack Crabb, looking back from extreme old age, tells of his life being raised by Native Americans and fighting with General Custer.
  • July 18: True Grit - A drunken, hard-nosed U.S. Marshal and a Texas Ranger help a stubborn teenager track down her father’s murderer in Indian territory.
  • August 22: The Long Riders - The origins, exploits and the ultimate fate of the Jesse James gang is told in a sympathetic portrayal of the bank robbers made up of brothers who begin their legendary bank raids because of revenge.
  • September 5: The Shootist - The story of notorious gun-fighter J. B. Books, who comes to Carson City, Nevada and receives a grim prognosis from his physician. Learning he has only weeks left to live, Books takes up residence at the boarding house of the widow, Mrs. Bond Rogers and her incorrigible son Gillom. As word of Book’s condition spread he is forced to recon with his reputation as well as his mortality. Before deciding to shorten his suffering in one last battle he takes Gillom under his wing to teach him how to be a man of principle.
