It is 25 years since CBS aired the television adaptation of “Lonesome Dove.” In 1989, Larry McMurtry’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name was made into a four-part television miniseries. The series starred Robert Duvall, Tommy Lee Jones, Anjelica Huston, Danny Glover and Ricky Schroder.

“Lonesome Dove” had an estimated 26 million viewers, showing Hollywood that the western was not dead. It won seven Emmys and two Golden Globes. It also spawned several sequels and two series.

On Jan. 15, the Autry National Center in Los Angeles will hold its monthly Cowboy Lunch. The theme will be "Lonesome Dove's 25th Anniversary." According to its website, the lunch series "bring[s] together Western filmmakers and other stars with Autry members and other fans of the genre.

“Following each lunch, Hollywood producer Rob Word will host ‘A Word on Westerns,’ a group discussion based on the particular theme or film of the month.”

The monthly lunch takes place in the Crossroads West Café on the grounds of the Autry National Center beginning at 12:30 p.m. Attendance is free. Lunch is not included but can be purchased.

The café has an interesting menu reflecting several cultures that made up California’s old west. Included on the menu are Fry Bread Tacos, Buffalo Burgers and a variety of homemade soups and fresh salads. Breakfast items are also served.
