Each summer the Empire Ranch Foundation celebrates classic Western movies with a showing on the big screen at The Loft Cinema in Tucson. The fundraiser event also includes knowledgeable presentations by guest speakers, with audience participation invited.
The Empire Ranch Foundation greatly appreciates the support of The Loft Cinema who sponsored the 2019 showing of Oklahoma! The Western Movies at the Loft events support the preservation of the Historic Empire Ranch on Las Cienegas National Conservation Area in Sonoita.
Past movie showings have included: Red River, Monte Walsh, 3:10 to Yuma, El Dorado, The Shootist, Westward the Women, Ride the High Country, the Outlaw Josey Wales, and Oklahoma.
