LIGHTS, CAMERA, COLORADO! BUFFALO BILL AND THE BIG SCREEN
March 25-August 12
Opening Saturday, March 25 with free historic tours at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

“Buffalo Bill” Cody founded a Wild West show that performed throughout Colorado, the United States and Europe until 1913. The new technology of motion picture cameras captured the drama of this time period and influenced a whole new movie genre: the Western. Reflect on the 100th anniversary of Buffalo Bill’s death with a display of authentic Western movie posters and artwork, dialogue about diversity in the West and history of the “horsecapades” of Jefferson County’s Westernaires drill team.
