Fort Douglas Day will be held on Saturday, 16 June and may include a campout on Friday night with outdoor movies. The Fort Douglas Post Theater will show the “Devils Brigade” on 19 May and may also show other WW1 films such as “Sargent York.” Additionally, there will be other film screenings at the Post Theater on the third Thursday of each month from January through June 2018. The films are sponsored by the Utah State Historical Society and will focus on the imagination of the American West. Films include the 1947 movie Ramrod (15 March), John Ford’s 1950 film Wagon Master (19 April) and Brigham Young 1940 (17 May). All should be fun to see on the big screen at the historic Fort Douglas Post Theater.
