Great Bear Rainforest - Giant Film

polar bearsFrom the outside world, the Great Bear Rainforest is a sanctuary to a stunning diversity of wildlife, including the fabled all-white Spirit Bear — the rarest bear on Earth — and the indigenous First Nations people, who have provided stewardship of the forest for millennia. It is the largest temperate coastal rainforest in the world and has remained relatively unchanged for more than 10,000 years. Great Bear Rainforest celebrates a place that could only have thrived through sustained co-existence between humans, land and sea animals, and the natural environment. Narrated by Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds, Great Bear Rainforest is the first time this pristine, wildlife-rich world will be experienced in giant screen theaters.

Hansen, the film explores the triumphs and the cost of one of the most dangerous missions in history.  Rated  PG-13. Released: 2018.

Lunar Film Fest - Apollo 13

At first, it seemed the perfect mission -- too perfect, even, to make headlines. After three days in space, three Apollo astronauts, Jim Lovell (Tom Hanks), Fred Haise (Bill Paxton), and Jack Swigert (Kevin Bacon), were finally approaching a long-cherished destination: Apollo 13 was going to the Moon. Rated PG. Released: 1995.
