ALBUQUERQUE ― MacGillivray Freeman Film’s National Parks Adventure takes audiences on the ultimate off-trail adventure into the nation’s awe-inspiring great outdoors and untamed wilderness. The film is showing at the DynaTheater at 1801 Mountain Road NW in Albuquerque.
Moviegoers will soar over red rock canyons, hurtle down steep mountain peaks and explore other-worldly realms found within America’s most legendary outdoor places. Along the way, the film becomes at once an action-packed celebration of the 100-year anniversary of the National Park Service and a soulful reflection on what wilderness means to us all.
“National Parks Adventure captures the stunning beauty of our wild places and reminds us these landscapes are an essential part of the human spirit,” states narrator and Academy Award ® winner Robert Redford.
Filmed in more than 30 national parks across the country, this immersive film for IMAX ® and giant screen theatres follows world-class mountaineer Conrad Anker, adventure photographer Max Lowe and artist Rachel Pohl as they hike, climb and explore their way across America’s spectacularly wild and beautiful places – including Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, Yosemite and Arches – revealing a tapestry of natural wonders that will inspire the adventurer in all of us. Captured with IMAX 3D cameras and shown in full glory in giant screen theatres, National Parks Adventure celebrates the majesty of our national parks and treasured landscapes while highlighting the importance of protecting them.
“There are 408 national parks in our country that many families have not been able to explore,” says two-time Academy Award ® -nominated director Greg MacGillivray. “Our hope is that National Parks Adventure will encourage our audiences to discover the beauty and sanctuary of these American treasures, which belong to every one of us.”
DynaTheater Manager Mike Pacheco says, “I chose this movie for our Theater because here in New Mexico we take pride in our National Parks. It is sort of a rite of passage when you live in New Mexico to go and experience the great outdoors, and if we can inspire people to continue to support our National Parks then we will be able to enjoy them for generations to come.”
National Parks Adventure follows in the tradition of MacGillivray Freeman’s award-winning giant screen films – including Everest, Dolphins, The Living Sea and To The Arctic – that are set in some of the most extraordinary places on the planet.
Working in collaboration with Brand USA – which is the destination-marketing organization for the United States – allowed National Parks Adventure to become the centerpiece of their global marketing initiative for their 2015-2016 “Great Outdoors” campaign.
National Parks Adventure is a MacGillivray Freeman film produced in association with Brand USA and presented globally by Expedia, Inc. and Subaru of America, Inc. with major support from the Giant Dome Theater Consortium.
The DynaTheater is located in the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science, 1801 Mountain Rd NW, Albuquerque NM, 87104.
