Museum of History Celebrates El Paso in the Movies

The El Paso Museum of History is celebrating El Paso and the Borderland’s place in Hollywood with the On Location: Making Movies in the Borderland exhibit.

The public is invited to view the exhibition, presented in conjunction with the Plaza Classic Film Fest, which highlights how Hollywood has turned El Paso’s desert and mountains into movie history.

Visitors can learn about El Pasoans who made their way to Hollywood and explore how filmmakers have used our city and the border as a background when filming. The exhibit spans 100 years of movie-making on the border and features shooting scripts, posters and lobby cards from movies such as Courage Under Fire, Glory Road, Aventurera, The Brave Bulls and other movies made in the El Paso-Juárez area.

“El Paso’s desert vistas have captured the imaginations of filmmakers from the early days of film. We are excited to showcase El Paso’s role in many feature films in this exhibition,” said Director of Museums and Cultural Affairs Tracey Jerome.

The Plaza Classic will be showing several films that feature El Paso including The Getaway, Committed, No Country for Old Men and Glory Road. The movie Amadeus, starring El Paso native and Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham, will also be screened as part of the festival.

The On Location: Making Movies in the Borderland exhibit is free and runs through October 28.
