The Lone Pine Film History Museum celebrates and preserves the diverse movie history of Lone Pine, Death Valley and the Eastern Sierras. The private institution has over 10,000 square feet of exhibits, an eighty-five seat movie theater and gift shop that focuses on keeping alive the cultural heritage of America’s cinematic history through film programs, artifacts preservation and exhibits and events including two film festivals.

Exhibits at the museum reflect the museum’s extensive collections and include: early silent films, post war films, “eastern,” science fiction such as Tremors and Iron Man and the many cowboy heroes who worked locally including John Wayne, Gene Autry and Roy Rogers.

All of this was made possible by a generous gift from Beverly and Jim Rogers of Intermountain West Communications Company. Many items from Mr. Rogers’s personal collection are on display in the museum including the cars from Trail to San Antone and High Sierra. Other film treasures on exhibit include hats and guns of many western stars, costumes from The Shootist, and Errol Flynn’s coat from Kim. Also on exhibit are several silver saddles from Mr. Rogers, including Bolin and Jeff Flowers. The Museum is always looking for gifts of western movies artifacts and posters as well as items available for purchase.

  • The museum itself is not worth a visit, but if you're in Lone Pine, it is a good complement to the beautiful ride in the locations of the Alabama Hills. So interesting and very affordable ($ 5 suggested form of donation).

  • It's a very specific movie museum, but there is still a lot to see. It focuses on artifacts from westerns that were filmed in that area. They also have a small section that shows which newer releases were filmed there. My kids liked the "Tremors" display.
  • Fun film museum with wonderful collection Take time to do the drives to the film location sites and the various hwy 395 sidetrips. Allow yourself the time to explore the museum and area.
