The Grand Mesa Arts & Events Center (GMAEC) will launch its first feature film on July 17 with a classic western adventure. The historic building housing the center will be returning to its roots since the site was once a movie theater. And the first feature will be a movie which entertained audiences there in 1953.

Although the center's initial contract with its movie distributor prohibits it from advertising the title or actors in newsprint, readers of a certain age are sure to recognize the plot.

Homesteaders are being forced off their land by a ruthless cattle baron and his gang of henchmen until one day a stranger arrives clad in a buckskin jacket. The stranger goes to work for a family and soon their young son is enamored with the mysterious man. Only a showdown can resolve this memorable classic with a one word title.

If you're still not sure of the title, call the center at 970-856-9195 or visit its website: www.grandmesaartscenter.com.

The western will be shown in a free evening performance on Wednesday, July 17. Doors open at 6 p.m. with show time at 6:30 p.m. Popcorn, candy and beverages will be available for sale. Future mid-week evening performances and Saturday matinees are in the planning stages with the most current information available on the GMAEC website.

The films are made possible by a generous grant from The Colorado Grand, an annual tour of classic cars which travels through the Surface Creek area every September. The Colorado Grand donates funds to support a wide variety of projects in communities along its route.
