Grand Canyon Adventure - 3D movie playing at IMAX theatre in Sacramento California
Whitewater river excitement & water conservation issues displayed vividly in a big-screen format."Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk combines exhilarating river-rafting action on America's most iconic river, family fun and the grandeur of the Grand Canyon to tell an engaging story of how ordinary people can make a difference for our parched planet - one that is running out of clean, fresh water so fast that the U.N. estimates that 40% of the world could face life-threatening shortages by the year 2050." (MacGillivray Freeman's Grand Canyon Adventure : River at Risk.)
"Set against the immense backdrop of the majestic Grand Canyon, Grand Canyon Adventure will take IMAX Theatre audiences on an exhilarating river-rafting adventure down the Colorado River in the company of a team of explorers who are committed to bringing awareness to global water issues." (Grand Canyon Adventure - Esquire IMAX Theatre, Sacramento, CA.)
"The Grand Canyon, especially as seen from a boat, maximizes the potential of 3D film. From the splashy, water-droplets-in-your-face opening sequence to the sweeping red rock vistas, viewers can get a feel for the up and down motion of riding in the bow of a dory or what it's like to stare down the wave train at Lava Falls from behind the oars." (Grand Canyon Adventure - 3D Imax Film March 14, 2008 - Canoe & Kayak Paddling News.)
I haven't seen this one yet, but the trailer and the review in Canoe & Kayak sound great. IMAX 3D movie technology is incredible and I've totally enjoyed every other movie I've seen in this format.
