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.
Say “nope” to the dog days of summer by enjoying a cool movie at the Briscoe, a Western Sci-Fi horror film from director Jordan Peele (“Us,” “Get Out”), “Nope” (2022). A family that trains and handles horses for film and television productions has to wrangle something they have never encountered before in a movie that will give you chills. Enjoy this fun flick, popcorn and free beer courtesy of Ranger Creek Brewing. A short presentation discussing the elements of Western films and emerging Black cinema will precede the film.
