Fall in love with America's amazing national parks without ever leaving Pittsburgh. National Parks Adventure, premiered at the Rangos Omnimax Theater in the Carnegie Science Center on Friday, February 12. Shown on the biggest and only dome screen in the Pittsburgh region, National Parks Adventure commemorates the U.S. National Park Service's 100-year anniversary through breath-taking images of America's natural treasures. National Parks Adventure is the ultimate off-trail adventure into the nation's awe-inspiring great outdoors and untamed wilderness. Soar over red rock canyons, hurtle down steep mountain peaks, and explore other-worldly realms found within America's most legendary outdoor places. Along the way, the film becomes at once an action-packed celebration of the 100-year anniversary of the National Park Service and a soulful reflection on what wilderness means to us all. Filmed in more than 30 national parks across the country, this immersive film 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 – including Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, Yosemite, and Arches – revealing a tapestry of natural wonders that will inspire the adventurer in all of us. National Parks Adventure celebrates the majesty of our national parks and treasured landscapes while highlighting the importance of protecting them. National Parks Adventure is a family-friendly film with a runtime of 43 minutes.
