About the Event

Originally released in 1941, Back in the Saddle features Gene’s signature song and his loveable sidekick, Smiley Burnette. Stars Gene Autry, Smiley Burnette, Mary Lee, Edward Norris, Jacqueline Wells, and Champion. Songs include “Back in the Saddle Again,” “In the Jailhouse Now,” “I’m an Old Cowhand,” “You Are My Sunshine,” and more!
PLUS: Live Pre-movie Show! Don’t miss a special performance by Bob Baker’s Marionette Theater, beginning at 6:30 p.m. before the film begins. This night out at the movies promises to be fun for all ages. Wear your favorite cowboy duds and receive a prize!
