B Movies and Bad History: Cowboys in Space

September 24 @ 9:00 am - 8:00 pm - Free

See the best (and worst) examples of sci-fi westerns shown on-screen and explore the meaning behind them.

The mashup of different genres is nothing new in the film business but no other combination of styles is more amusing than the sci-fi western. Trade the cowboy’s six-shooter and horse for a ray-gun and spaceship and let the fun begin. Join us for a look at some of the best (and worse) examples of the space cowboy through clips and conversation.  This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Cowboys in Space and Fantastic Worlds on view at the Bullock Museum.

Prior to the program from 6:00pm to 7:00pm enjoy a reception and self-guided tours of the exhibit Cowboys in Space and Fantastic Worlds.
