VENUES

PTIFF_003-4.jpg

DESERT WILLOW

RANCH

The Desert Willow Ranch was purchased from Russel Hayden by John and Gay Smith in 1969. It’s 5 acre spread features many old west style structures which will be our designated welcoming center. From the moment you arrive at the PTIFF you will be completely submersed and transported to the days of the Old West. Sign-in, meet your hosts and grab a cocktail from our old west bar featuring Fistful of Bourbon before exploring Pioneertown.

HISTORIC

SOUND

STAGE

Our premiere theater location is the historic sound stage located on Mane Street in Pioneertown. Just a five minute walk from Desert Willow Ranch, the Sound Stage was built in 1947 when Pioneertown was originally founded by Roy Rogers and Gene Autry and used for many film and television productions. Today it serves as an event space and will be fully customized with theater seating and an Old West bar for our premiere screenings.

PIONEERTOWN

MOTEL

Built originally as a waypost for movie stars of old Western, Pioneertown Motel has stood since 1946 as a place for wearied travelers and sun-drunk revelers to seek solace and inspiration. Gene Autry played poker until sunrise in Room #9. The boutique motel and its landscaped grounds will host our VIP lounge & filmmakers and special guests will be put up in the motel as the festival’s official lodging.

HISTORIC
RED DOG SALOON

A revived historic saloon in the heart of Pioneertown, this completely intact bar - good for  eatin', drinkin', and carryin’ on -  will host the festival’s late night hangouts and nightcaps.

SUPER X

RANCH
