National Parks Adventure Premieres On PEEC’s New Planetarium Projector April 21

PEEC News:
The Los Alamos Nature Center is bringing the National Parks Adventure to its planetarium at 2 p.m., April 21 after the Earth Day festival and will be the first full-dome film to be shown on the new planetarium projector.
The power of America’s national parks is undeniable. Millions have packed up the family to hike through impossibly lush forests, to gaze upon towering cliffs and deep-plunging canyons, to witness the breathtaking arcs of natural history, and, to share moments of wonder amid the protected treasures of this land.
A MacGillivray Freeman film produced in association with Brand USA and narrated by Academy Award® winner Robert Redford, National Parks Adventure is acclaimed filmmaker Greg MacGillivray’s most visually ambitious giant-screen film to date — a film that offers not only a sweeping overview of the national parks’ history, but is equal parts adrenaline-pumping odyssey and soulful reflection on what the wilderness means to everyone.
After the premiere, there will be regular Saturday showings of National Parks Adventure at the planetarium. Visit, to find the planetarium schedule.
This film is brought to Los Alamos by the following sponsors: CB FOX, Metzger’s Hardware and the Delle Foundation, with additional funding from the Manhattan Project National Historical Park.
Because we only have 50 seats in the planetarium, we ask that you please purchase your tickets at the Los Alamos Nature Center or call to reserve your seats. Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for children. Planetarium shows are not recommended for kids under age 4.
