Gene Autry Double Features at The Autry Museum
Updated September 6, 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, October 22nd the theme is "Election Year."
With the Presidential Election this year our October Gene Autry Double Feature focuses on the importance of voting. In Rovin' Tumbleweeds Gene is elected to Congress in an attempt to round-up crooked politicians in Washington D.C. and in Colorado Sunset he is elected to sheriff to cleanup an unscrupulous protective association.
