The National Park Service is getting the perfect present for its 100th anniversary in 2016 — its very own stunning 3-D IMAX film highlighting national treasures.
National Parks Adventure (in theaters Feb. 12, 2016) will take viewers on what director Greg MacGillivray calls the ultimate off-trail adventure through many of the nation’s most beautiful wild parks, narrated by environmentalist filmmaker Robert Redford.
“There have been films about the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls and Yellowstone National Park,” says MacGillivray. “But an overall film about the national parks waited until this 100th anniversary. It’s now so much more poignant and meaningful, and celebrating 100 years is a wonderful thing.”
The film follows world-class mountaineer Conrad Anker, his adventure photographer stepson Max Lowe and artist Rachel Pohl as they rock climb, mountain climb and hike through Utah’s Arches, Canyonlands and Zion national parks.
MacGillivray also utilized time-lapse camera crews, a helicopter camera and a 3-D IMAX camera to gloriously depict more than 30 national parks over 400 shooting days on rich IMAX 15/70 film.
