Can Science Fiction and Western film genres exist together? Of course – it’s the movies! The Briscoe’s Summer Movie Series explores films that merge these two unique and contrasting styles. A short presentation begins at 1 p.m., followed immediately by the screening. The movie is included in general museum admission, with free brews courtesy of Ranger Creek Brewery. Popcorn, drinks and snacks will be available for purchase.
Join the Briscoe for the second film in the summer “Western Sci-Fi” series, director Jon Favreau’s (“Iron Man,” “The Mandalorian”) science fiction Western action film “Cowboys & Aliens” (2011). Based on a graphic novel of the same name, the movie has a star-studded cast that includes Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, and Harrison Ford. The movie will follow a short presentation discussing the crossover of the genres of Western film and science fiction. Pre-registration is encouraged to ensure your seat.
