The Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society is proud to present John Ford's 1939 epic Western "Stagecoach" on Saturday, June 13, 2009 at dusk.

The latest screening in the Society's "Flickers at the Junction" film series will be shown outdoors (weather permitting) at the historic Saugus Train Station in Heritage Junction in Old Town Newhall.

Suggested donation is $5, which includes free popcorn.

The SCVHS will be honoring the 70th anniversary of "Stagecoach" as well as the 30th anniversary of the passing of John Wayne.

Wayne, born Marion Morrison, had a decade's worth of films under his belt before "Stagecoach" made him a star -- which he remained until his death on June 11, 1979. Part of the movie was filmed locally at Newhall's Beale's Cut.

The Saugus Train Station is located at Heritage Junction (inside William S. Hart Park), 24107 Newhall Avenue (formerly San Fernando Road), Newhall 91321.

Gates open at 7 p.m. and the film rolls at dusk (around 8 p.m.). Please bring lawn chairs and blankets.
