The Beverly and Jim Rogers Lone Pine Film History Museum’s, located at 701 South Main Street in Lone Pine, California, celebrates and preserves the diverse movie history of Lone Pine, Death Valley and the Eastern Sierra.
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 an annual film festival.
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.
Much of this was made possible by a generous gift from Beverly and Jim Rogers of Inter mountain 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. Contact the Museum at 760-876-9909 for more information or visit www.lonepinefilmhistorymuseum.org
