Gene Autry Double Features at the Autry Museum
Posted May 8, 2017
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. In 2017, 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. On the fourth Saturday of every other month, two Gene Autry films are screened at the museum in the Imagination Gallery's Western Legacy Theater.
July's Double Feature theme is "Republic Pictures." Gene Autry was the star of 89 movies with the first half of his big screen career at Republic Pictures between 1935 and 1947. All of his movies feature Gene's trademark music, comedy, and action with the Republics heavy on the music. There are nine musical performances in Boots and Saddles and seven in Western Jamboree. Be sure to sing along with Gene... and Smiley Burnette.
