Academy Award® Winner Robert Redford Narrates the Film Celebrating the U.S. National Park Service 100-Year Anniversary
This Friday Clark Planetarium opens “National Parks Adventure 3D” in the Orbital ATK IMAX® Theatre.
Filmed in more than 30 national parks across the country—and featuring all five of Utah’s national parks—the immersive film for IMAX® 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. “National Parks Adventure 3D” celebrates the majesty of our national parks and treasured landscapes while highlighting the importance of protecting them. The film also commemorates the 100-year anniversary of the U.S. National Parks Service.
“National Parks Adventure 3D” 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.
Clark Planetarium Director Seth Jarvis says, “Clark Planetarium is proud to bring this film to our community. National Parks are some of the last places where we can experience truly dark skies—to observe and appreciate the night sky and our place in the cosmos. We hope this film encourages patrons to discover the beauty of these places and to become ever better stewards of Earth.”
“Utahans are fortunate to have some of the most iconic and majestic National Park landscapes in the country and National Parks Conservations Association is excited to be a part of the National Park Centennial celebrations. This film illustrates the importance of our mission – to protect the parks for future generations – during this special commemorative year,” said David Nimkin, Senior Regional Director, Southwest Region, National Parks Conservation Associate.
