The Autry presents a matinee screening of The Lone Ranger and the Lost City of Gold, a 1958 feature expanded from the popular TV series, which is now celebrating its 70th anniversary. The show was foundational in a generation’s understanding of the myth of the West. Tonto was, for the Baby Boomers, the archetypal Native American in popular culture. Native actor and writer Jason Grasl (Blackfeet) will introduce the program, which begins with a showing of the inaugural episode of The Lone Ranger and concludes with a conversation moderated by Leonard Maltin and Dawn Moore, daughter of star Clayton Moore.

Wells Fargo Theater at Autry Museum of the American West, 4700 Western Heritage Way, Griffith Park; Sat., Nov. 23, 1:30 p.m.; free with museum admission. (323) 667-2000, theautry.org.
