2019 MOVIE SCHEDULE

The Outlaw Josey Wales

1976 - Color

Known as one of Clint Eastwood’s best films, The Outlaw Josey Wales chronicles the journey of Josey Wales on his way West in the days after his wife and child were murdered by Terrill (Bill McKinney). After refusing to surrender to the Union soldiers that killed his family, Wales is now running as a wanted man with the help of a few Confederates to avoid capture and seek revenge for his family’s death.

MOVIE HISTORY IN KANAB

The Parry brothers assisted with the transportation needs of the first movie made in Southern Utah starring Tom Mix in “Deadwood Coach” in 1924. They enjoyed the movie business and profited from their experience. In 1931 they opened Parry Lodge in Kanab so they could feed and house as well as transport the casts and crews. Armed with hundreds of photos of the area’s scenic locations, they made several trips to Hollywood calling on studio executives and locations scouts.

 

Their efforts were wildly successful. Over the next 50 years, Kanab area scenery and residents were used in over 100 featured films and hundreds of television episodes. Most of those productions made Parry Lodge their home away from home.
