Nestled beneath the alpine splendor of the Teton Mountains in Wyoming, the Stagecoach Bar has long been welcoming an eclectic and evolving cocktail of characters. The Stagecoach Bar: An American Crossroads paints an intimate portrait of a roadhouse that, for more than 70 years, has been defining and defying our visions of the Wild West and Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
The film introduces a multifarious cast, including the beloved Stagecoach Band, which has been serving up musical entertainment every Sunday night for more than 40 years. Meet the Stagecoach Bar’s first owner Walt Callahan and attend his rowdy rodeos, beginning in the 1940s. Then roll through the decades with the ranchers, hippies, second homeowners, skiers, downhill bikers, Sunday night toe-tappers, Stagecoach Band members and Disco Night dancers, who all mix it up at this unpretentious and cherished community watering hole. The high-deﬁnition film features rarely seen and newly discovered historic footage and photos along with interviews with everyone from old-timers to newcomers to Western scholars.
