Specialty Museum
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.

  • This little museum along Highway 395 in Lone Pine is quite the gem of nostalgia. From silent stars and film memorabilia, to television Western serials, to today's current film works in the local area,...  more »

  • Excellent collection of western movie items: pictures, costumes, props, pictures, and collectibles were mostly from pictures shot locally and all well labeled. A short video of western filming in the area was facinating, and for me nostalgic. The store has a good variety of items. The lady working the museum was helpful.
  • Super cool little museum to be enjoyed by both western lovers and production nerds. Props from a few modern movies filmed in the area which is exciting for those who don't have ties to the westerns of yesteryear. Also probably the only time you'll see a Panavision camera! A few tesla charging stations around back.
  • This movies Museum is one of the best I know. We came here several times and at the begining of this Museum.
  • SUPER interesting if you are into old movies and historic objects. A good quick stop if you're on the road and want to take a second to relax.
  • Great collection of movies, had no idea so many were shot in the area. Loved that we could take our dog in!
