The wonderful memories that the Lone Ranger and Tonto, Hopalong Cassidy, Roy Rogers and Clint Eastwood bring to mind are all part of the unique era of Hollywood film making known as the westerns. Find our more at the Museum of Western Film History, located at the south end of Lone Pine.

The Lone Pine Movie Room is dedicated to preserving that magical time of cowboys and Indians, of stagecoaches and stem engines when heroes reigned over the wild and rugged west, and the bad guys always got their due.

Be sure to stop by the Movie Stars Autographed Wall inside the Indian Trading Post and scout our your favorite stars autograph among the ones collected here. The Movie Room is located at 126 S. Main Street in the Lone Pine Chamber of Commerce courtyard.

Hollywood’s BIG Back Lot

From Tremors to Iron Man and even classics like Hopalong Cassidy featuring John Wayne. A good place to start is Movie Road which is a popular spot to get that iconic Instagram shot of the Alabama Hills Recreation Area. You can access Movie Flats Road from Lone Pine. From US 395, turn west on Whitney Portal Road, and once you reach the sign for the Alabama Hills Recreation Area, make a right onto Movie Road.
