    Description: 

    Enjoy a bang-up time as we take over the entire world-famous Old Tucson for the evening in celebration of the University of Arizona College of Optical Sciences 50th anniversary.

    Built in 1938 by Columbia Pictures as a replica of 1860s Tucson for the movie "Arizona," Old Tucson has been the backdrop to over 70 major motion pictures including "¡Three Amigos!" (1986) and "Tombstone" (1993). It's considered southern Arizona’s premier outdoor entertainment venue, with a full array of live shows, thrilling stunts, Old West dramas and saloon musicals!

    Cowboys will welcome you into the town square as you arrive for a cocktail reception, followed by a delicious Western buffet and delightful Western entertainment. At the height of the evening, join Dean Thomas L. Koch and faculty as we briefly share some fun glimpses back into OSC’s history and the excitement today’s students can experience with groundbreaking research being conducted at the college.

    We will be providing transportation between the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa and Old Tucson for Frontiers in Optics conference attendees registered for this event.
