women of the west   Stilletos

Our fourth annual Briscoe Museum Film Series is dedicated to Women of the West. The Western film genre has long been a man’s territory where women are relegated to the sidelines and reduced to one-dimensional characters. This summer we present four films with strong female protagonists—each complex, unique, and a far cry from a damsel in distress.  Mosey on over for fun, food truck fare, and free beer! The Museum remains open late (9:00pm) every Tuesday, so make sure to check out the galleries before and after the movie.
