National Parks Adventure


SHOWTIMES: 11:00 am & 3:00 pm

The U.S. National Park Service turns 100 years old in 2016. National Parks Adventure celebrates this significant milestone by bringing the magnificence of these landscapes to the giant screen, showcasing the beauty and grandeur of the national parks—where some of America’s most incredibly diverse landscapes remain untouched as they were millions of years ago. National Parks Adventure is an awe-inspiring visual and musical journey that reminds us of America’s great natural heritage. From the majesty of America’s first national park, Yellowstone National Park, to the red-rock wonderland of Arches National Parks, to the tallest trees in the world nestled in Redwood National Park, experience the birth of this vast park system and America in all her natural splendor. Join Rachel, a painter; Conrad, climber extraordinaire and park ambassador; and Max, the adventure photographer, as they hike, bike and raft across America’s most pristine parks, discovering that America’s wilds still hold some of the greatest adventures, and beauty, known to man.

Narrated by Robert Redford, National Parks Adventure is a MacGillivray Freeman film presented by Expedia, Inc. in association with Brand USA with support from the Giant Dome Theater Consortium. It is directed by Greg MacGillivray and produced by Shaun MacGillivray, written by Stephen Judson and Tim Cahill with music by Steve Wood.
