Shout Outs

The Mustanger and the Lady

It's almost impossible to not be sucked into Guthrie's small town charm, from the historical buildings that make up the downtown area to the shops and diners that provide an undeniably timeless feel. Few places allow you to like a part of history like Guthrie is able to. For filming purposes, it's ideal for Old West films and westerns from any era. The changes needed to transform the town for a period piece are minimal, especially for filming downtown. The people are amazing to work with, having become old pros at the filming process thanks to numerous movies coming into town. When I served as location manager for a western filmed in Guthrie in 2016 I was shocked at how accommodating shop owners and civilians were, as well as the incredible help I received from the people at City Hall to make the process pain-free and fun for all involved. I honestly can't speak any higher of Guthrie for being able to serve our needs or for the people being so generous and accommodating. - Director, James Cotton

Monday at 11:01AM

"We chose to film the thriller Monday at 11:01 A.M. in Guthrie because the town has been preserved so well it fit our script perfectly as "the town that time forgot". The people were very welcoming and a true pleasure to work with, so much so that I bought another project to Guthrie." - Director, Harvey Lowry
