We usually end the year with an A-Western, but for our last meeting of the 2017-18 season, we’ll finish with TWO B-Westerns! Don’t miss the show on Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 6:45 PM

Feature 1: Carson City Raiders (Republic, 1948) Starring Allan Lane, Eddy Waller, Frank Reicher and Beverly Jons. Directed by Yakima Canutt.

Feature 2: The Lone Prairie (Columbia, 1942) Starring Russell Hayden, Dub Taylor, Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys. Directed by William Berke.
