The WYO is going Western

A coming-of-age Western, The Culpepper Cattle Co. with Gary Grimes and Bo Hopkins will be shown on Jan. 17. Hondo, starring John Wayne, Geraldine Page and Ward Bond will be featured on Jan. 24. The final film, Canadian Pacific, this years’ rousing locomotor with Randolph Scott and Jane Wyatt, will be shown on Jan. 31. All films are at 2 p.m., Sundays in January.
