Opening in The Dome on Saturday, April 30

Audiences will soar over red rock canyons and hurtle down steep mountain peaks in National Parks Adventure – arriving in The Dome at the Science Museum of Virginia on Saturday, April 30.

Created by MacGillivray Freeman Films, the stunning giant screen movie takes guests on the ultimate off-trail adventure into America’s untamed wilderness. Moviegoers will journey alongside modern-day explorers into the great outdoors as they hike, climb, bike and ski their way across some of the country’s most beautiful and protected places – including Yellowstone, Glacier, Yosemite and Arches National Parks.

“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.”

National Parks Adventure celebrates the 100-year anniversary of the National Park Service, showcases treasured landscapes and highlights the importance of protecting these sites. Filmed in more than 30 national parks across the country, the immersive movie narrated by Academy Award® winner Robert Redford reveals a tapestry of natural wonders that will inspire the adventurer in all of us.
