About the Event

Every other month, two Gene Autry films are screened at the Autry. 
July’s Gene Autry 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. 
As part of this year’s Autry Members’ Summer Picnic, this special Gene Autry Double Feature will take place at 3:00 p.m. instead of the usual time (noon). After the screenings, go outside for live music, BBQ, and games on the Autry Lawn.

Boots and Saddles (1937) Republic Pictures (59 minutes)

Foreman Gene Autry and his sidekick, Frog Millhouse, befriend the boy and become involved in a series of misadventures with the Army colonel's uninhibited daughter and other personnel at the Post.
