About The Exhibit: Enjoy the film on 5/6 and then catch the new exhibit at Gilcrease Museum! "Exploring The Big Trail" (May 1 - Dec. 31) showcases stereoscopic photographs taken during the filming of the 1930 motion picture The Big Trail, featuring John Wayne in his first starring role. With the majority of images never before seen, this exhibition provides insights into the production of the first big-budget film of the sound era and the role Westerns played in shaping the mythology of the American West.

About Reel-to-Reel 35mm projection: This is the debut of an archival print being specially projected at Circle Cinema with the purchase of additional and necessary equipment to screen vintage motion pictures. This was made possible from The Hardesty Foundation who purchased it for our "90 By 90" Capital Improvement Campaign Fund.
