Hollywood Southwest: New Mexico in Film and Television
Until Aug 27, 2017
From "Billy the Kid" to "Breaking Bad," movies and television have portrayed and marketed our state into the present day. Over the past decade, film production in New Mexico has enjoyed a renaissance, thanks to state incentives. However, film has long been a part of New Mexico’s landscape, and the state’s landscape and people have often been featured in film.
Curated by Dr. Paul A. Hutton, professor of history at the University of New Mexico, "Hollywood Southwest: New Mexico in Film and Television" features three elements of New Mexico’s film history: the state as a location, the state as a subject, and the state’s people as subjects.
From Ace in the Hole (1951) to Walker, Texas Ranger (TV series, 1993-2001), nearly 800 movies and television series have been filmed in New Mexico. Explore the complete list!
