B Movies and Bad History: When Texas Saw Red


June 14, 2016 7:00pm - 8:30pm

An evening that explores just how real the threat of communism was perceived to be in Texas.

B Movies and Bad History takes participants on a tour of some of the best (and worst) Texas-centric movies and television shows with historians, authors, and media experts as they expose the historical facts and fiction on-screen.

Explore the cinema and psyche of Texas during the Cold War. Join Madeline Moya, Managing Director at the Texas Archive of the Moving Image, and James McReynolds, Public Programs Manager at the Bullock Museum, for discussion and film clips which show how national and international politics were reflected in Texas entertainment, news, schools and home life. Look back and laugh at the Cold War hysteria (or lack thereof) as it was presented through Texas showbiz. Come early for a reception with donated bar opening at 6:30pm.

This program is presented in partnership with the Texas Archive of the Moving Image and was inspired by the When Texas Saw Red exhibit.
