The Official Website of Gene Autry, America's Favorite Singing Cowboy

Fun Autry Fact:

When he was a young man, Gene received an offer from a professional baseball team to become a player. Gene turned down the offer because it would have meant a fifty-dollar-a-month pay cut from his telegrapher's job.

Dinner and a Movie: Gene Autry Westerns

Celebrate the very best of "movie star" Gene Autry at this year's Dinner and a Movie event at the Autry National Center.

Thursdays in June, you can ride on over to the Autry Museum and spend a beautiful summer evening enjoying an outdoor dinner, gallery talks, and a classic Gene Autry Western movie. Take advantage of the whole package: dine al fresco, tour the galleries, and then kick back and watch the famous Singing Cowboy on the silver screen. There is even time to shop in the fabulous Museum Store.

Returning to this year's Dinner and a Movie at the Autry will be the same fun folks you've grown to know and love: Senior Curator Michael Duchemin will be leading the Gene Autry gallery talks, the Museum Store will supply more wonderful raffle prizes, Karla Buhlman will host the talk before the film, and of course a beautifully restored Gene Autry and Champion will grace the movie screen. Plus the Golden Spur Cafe has planned some tasty meals to kick off the evening!
