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.

Unwind and spend your evenings relaxing while dining, shopping or booking a sunset/stargazing tour at the Denny’s Wigwam Gift Shop and Iron Horse Restaurant Saloon located steps from the Parry Lodge that take the worry out of planning your day adventures.
Home to our Western Legends of Utah’s Little Hollywood, Parry Lodge was founded by the Parry Brothers Whit, Chauncy and Gronway in 1931. It has hosted some of the biggest names from the golden age of Hollywood. John Wayne, Frank Sinatra, James Garner, Gregory Peck, Maureen O'Hara, Tyrone Power, Omar Shariff, Sammy Davis Jr, Anne Baxter, Dean Martin, Yvonne DeCarlo, Ronald Reagan and Barbara Stanwyck are just a few of the hundreds of stars and character players that stayed at Parry's while filming in the many scenic locales in and around Kanab, Utah. Parry Lodge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
