The mission of the Museum of Western Film History is to collect, preserve, protect, archive and exhibit a variety of original materials containing information of permanent historical value relating to the history and heritage of the American Western Film for the preservation, education and enrichment of the public. The Museum actively pursues collections of personal papers, business and organizational records, as well as memorabilia that reflect and document aspects of Western film history and popular culture for successive generations to discover. Located on Highway 395 on the south end of town, the museum’s 10,000 square feet of exhibits, an eighty-five seat movie theater and gift shop offer visitors a unique experience helping to document and interpret the cultural heritage of America’s cinematic history through film programs, artifact preservation and exhibits.
However, the museum's largest exhibit is its “Back Lot” – The Alabama Hills, just to the west of town. Since the early 1920s, these rugged, rounded rock formations and meandering gullies have played a "starring role" as Hollywood’s Western backdrop for cowboy action thrillers featuring Hopalong Cassidy, Randolph Scott, Gene Autry, Tim Holt and Roy Rogers. William Shatner, Kevin Bacon and Robert Downey Jr. have all filmed in the shadow of Mount Whitney, the highest summit in the contiguous United States, in such films as Star Trek, Tremors, and Ironman.
Come visit and enjoy a very unique film experience … and join us each Columbus Day weekend for our annual Lone Pine Film Festival honoring the heroes and heroines of the silver screen. Mingle with celebrity guests, visit the movie sites with the "back lot tours;" enjoy classic film screenings, a Sunday Cowboy Church service; and close the weekend with an old fashion “Main Street parade" and Sunday evening's campfire roundup in the park.
