Enjoy “Tunes and Tails from the Cowboy Trails”, a nostalgic ride through the music that shaped the West. Small part lecture and large part music – performed live – and set to historical photography, Hired Guns will help you rediscover (or just discover!) songs like The Streets of Laredo, Ghost Riders in the Sky and The Marshal and the Outlaw and the stories behind them. It’s 90 minutes of story and music you won’t soon forget.
Come early to meet Lannie “The Marshal” Scopes and Craig “Creek” Johnson before the show at the National Night Out, beginning at 5:30 p.m. The Utah Old Time Fiddlers will be on hand, along with other entertainment for your viewing and listening pleasure. National Night Out includes free food, entertainment, emergency preparedness displays, a visit from McGruff, bouncy houses, and face painting for kids. National Night Out is a way to help build community relationships between neighbors and the City. It is the Nation’s premier anti-crime and drug abuse event. A special “meet-and-greet” with the Mayor and City Council is also scheduled.
This is one summer show you do not want to miss! More info at wvc-ut.gov/nno
The Man Who Saved The World tells the amazing story of Lt. Colonel Stanislav E. Petrov—a man who held the fate of the world in his hands for a few crucial minutes in history on the night of September 26, 1983. When an alarm went off saying that five American nuclear missiles had been launched against the Soviet Union, he followed his gut feeling and went against orders and protocol, in the process saving the world from nuclear holocaust.
THE INVISIBLE WAR is a groundbreaking investigation about one of America’s most shameful and best kept secrets: the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military. The film paints a startling picture of the extent of the problem—today, a female soldier in combat zones is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. Focusing on the powerfully emotional stories of rape victims, this is a moving indictment of the systemic cover-up of military sex crimes, chronicling the women’s struggles to rebuild their lives and fight for justice.
