Schedule of events:

  • 3:00 p.m.: Opening activities begin in the theatre courtyard.
  • 3:30 p.m.: A panel takes the stage to share background and stories about the making of the film in Sedona.
  • 4:00 p.m.: Watch The Rounders, a 1965 American modern western film set In Sedona. It features Henry Fonda and Glenn Ford as two aging cowpokes who bust broncos, charm local ladies and bet on outcomes at the rodeo.
One of the best color films for Sedona scenery, this is also a fun romp exploiting Sedona places and events. For this film, the town hosted a parade on main street, a rodeo, and a risqué visit to the local fish hatchery. Fun to watch, reviewed as some of the best color photography in film to that date. Engaging in many ways.
