New iMAX movie on the National Parks
2016 is the 100th Anniversary of the NPS. We are now seeing the promotion of the parks like never before. The Rose Parade in Pasadena featured an entry complete with horses sent down from Yosemite.
Next came the bust of a James Franco film, titled “Yosemite.” $7 to see less of the park than I have on my home movies.
Get ready – in a week you’ll get to travel to many of the parks again via the iMAX 3-D film: “National Parks Adventure 3D.” It screens nationwide on the 12th.
The promo reads:
”Join world-class mountaineer Conrad Anker, adventure photographer Max Lowe, and climber Rachel Pohl as they bike, hike and climb across America’s most pristine parks, revealing a tapestry of natural wonders that will inspire the adventurer in us all.”
Wow a tapestry! Anker is a local boy, from near Groveland.
It might be worth seeing. They covered 30 parks with 4 getting lotsa of screen time: Yellowstone, Glacier, Yosemite and Arches.
There’s plenty of Yosemite climbing and scenery footage. Local impersonator, Lee Stetson, has a big role as John Muir.
I’ll plan on seeing it. But you’re going to have to hunt out an iMAX or giant screen venue. Good things then to move out fast.
Plus, I like narrator, Robert Redford.
Unrelated thought worth quoting: “Health food may be good for the conscience but Oreos taste a hell of a lot better.” – Robert Redford
