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.

THE MUSEUM OF WESTERN FILM HISTORY
PRESENTS ITS ANNUAL
CONCERT IN THE ROCKS
SATURDAY JUNE 2, 2018
Group from web

A TRIBUTE TO FRANK SINATRA
Featuring

Matt Mauser & The Pete Jacobs Orchestra

Enjoy an evening like no other… A collaboration between Matt Mauser and the Pete Jacobs Orchestra that captures Sinatra’s talent at the height of his career when singing with The Count Basie Orchestra at The Sands hotel in Las Vegas.

Matt SingingMatt’s vocal style and Pete’s genius as a conductor are a tribute to the two greats coming together. While there are plenty of tribute acts and impersonators of legendary entertainer Frank Sinatra, Mauser takes it to a level beyond. His golden voice recreates the Sinatra magic with his impeccable phrasing and smooth ring-a-ding-ding style. 

For Frank Sinatra fans, Matt Mauser is absolutely uncanny. The show, incorporates true-to-form songs once crafted and branded by Ol’ Blue Eyes, himself. Additionally, Matt and band will be tossing in a few modern rock and R&B classics that Matt says he’s sure Sinatra would have loved singing.

The evening will take you down memory lane… with a marvelous rundown of Sinatra songs including "Come Fly With Me," "Luck be a Lady" (first as Brando sang it in "Guys and Dolls"), "The Best is Yet to Come," "The Way You Look Tonight," "Fly Me to the Moon," "Night and Day," "The Lady is a Tramp," "You Make me Feel so Young," and "I've Got You Under my Skin" and of course Ol’ Blue Eyes classic - New York New York.

REVIEWS: from recent Concert goers...
"The House Was Rockin' "
"Multi-Generation Appeal"
"Close your Eyes and you'll Think it's Sinatra"

History of Lone Ranger Canyon

While details differ, the basic story of the origin of the Lone Ranger is the same in most versions of the franchise. Six Texas Rangers are drawn into a remote canyon and ambushed by a band of outlaws led by Bartholomew "Butch" Cavendish. All are left for dead.

Later, a young Indian named Tonto stumbles on the scene and recognizes the lone survivor, Ranger Reid (whose first name was never given), as the man who had saved his life at some time in the past. He nurses Reid back to health after digging six graves for Reid's comrades, so that Cavendish will think there were no survivors, forgetting that Cavendish thought he had killed seven men in that canyon, including the traitorous scout who led the Rangers into the trap. Among them is Reid's brother, Captain Daniel Reid, who is a Captain of the Texas Rangers. Tonto fashions a black Domino mask using material from Captain Reid's vest to conceal the Lone Ranger's identity. Even after the Cavendish gang is brought to justice, Reid continues to fight for law and order against evil and crime under the guise of the Lone Ranger.

Yes, Kimosabes, that ambush happened in The Alabama Hills near Lone Pine, California, in what is now called Lone Ranger Canyon. Each year, the Lone Pine community and Lone Pine Film History Museum pay tribute to the heritage of the canyon’s history by transforming the dramatic canyon into a magical entertainment venue under the Eastern Sierra stars.
