About the Event

The Electric Film Series returns to the Electric Theater on Tuesday, February 20th at 6 PM (Doors at 5:30 PM) with a talkie from the 20’s that was shot almost entirely in Southern Utah;

“In Old Arizona” (1928)

--------------------------------------------

With The Utah Film Commission leading the charge in a 100-year celebration of film in our beautiful state, The Electric Film Series thought this would be the perfect opportunity to showcase “In Old Arizona,” a lesser-known but no less influential talkie that was filmed primarily in Utah locales including Bryce National Park and Zion National Park. It’s also reportedly the first talkie to be shot outdoors. In this western, a sheriff plays a game of cat-and-mouse with a bandit looking to romance a local beauty. Not only is “In Old Arizona” an entertaining time, but it’s also an intriguing look at a Utah of the past. 

Per usual, we at The Electric Film Series aren’t just about the movies themselves. We’re also all about film history and context and as such, with each of these screenings we have a very special guest on hand to introduce the title of the evening and to lead a post-screening discussion. For this rare screening of “In Old Arizona,” we’re giving our lovely attendees a twofer; Filmmaker Dan Fowlks (“Lex Talionis,” “Shred of Decency”) and Arts to Zion Executive Director Bobbi Wan-kier. Both Fowlks and Wan-Kier have a grand passion for film history in the area, so you can bet this will be quite an insightful evening at the movies.

Be sure to arrive at the “In Old Arizona” screening a little early and order an optional menu item from Riggatti’s to enjoy during the post-screening discussion or, you can feel free to take the pizza home with you following the movie. 

We hope to see you all there!
