Gene Autry Double Features at The Autry Museum
Updated March 7, 2016
Saturday matinee double features (the screening of two motion pictures for the price of one) were an industry standard in the first half of the 20th century. The Autry Museum of the American West continues the tradition with its own Saturday matinee double features starring America's Favorite Singing Cowboy, Gene Autry. Two of Gene's musical B Westerns are screened the fourth Saturday of every other month in the Imagination Gallery's Western Legacy Theater.
Each Double Feature has a theme and for the screening on Saturday, April 23rd the theme is "Dude Ranch Cowhands."
In several of Gene Autry's Republic Pictures musical B-Westerns, he plays the role of Ranch Forman overseeing city folk pretending to be cowboys and cowgirls at a Dude Ranch. April's films Western Jamboree and Heart of the Rio Grande follow this plot line with plenty of hijinks and Western songs.
For details on the Saturday, April 23rd Gene Autry Double Feature please visit the Autry Museum's website here.
