The Emerson is a thriving arts and community center located a block from historic downtown Bozeman. The building was originally an elementary school built in 1918, attended by thousands of Bozeman youth before its closure in 1991. With the building facing demolition in 1992, a grassroots coalition of community members dedicated to historic preservation and celebration of the arts formed a non-profit board, raised funds, and bought the building from the City of Bozeman.

Movie at 7:30
A convict and a wild stallion try to tame each other in a stirring and poetic prison drama about a man and his horse.
The Bozeman Film Society partners with local non-profit, Windhorse Equine Learning, for a screening of “The Mustang” at 7:30 PM on Wednesday, June 19th in the Emerson Crawford Theater. Inspired by actual wild-horse rehabilitation programs in prisons throughout the West and Midwest, violent convict, Roman (Flemish actor Matthias Schoenaerts), is required to participate in an “outdoor maintenance” program as part of his state-mandated social rehabilitation. Spotted by a no-nonsense veteran trainer (Bruce Dern) and helped by an outgoing fellow inmate and trick rider (Jason Mitchell), Roman is accepted into the selective wild horse training section of the program, where he finds his own humanity in gentling an especially unbreakable mustang.
Developed at Robert Redford’s Sundance Institute lab for emerging talent, “The Mustang” marks an impressive feature directorial debut by French actress Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre. Rated R, the film runs 96 minutes. CC. General Admission seating. A portion of ticket sales will benefit Windhorse Equine Learning. Learn more at www.bozemanflimsociety.org – and Keep ‘Em Flickering!
