Catch a glimpse of the Alps in Denver.

You still have time to see The Alps, MacGillivray Freeman’s newest IMAX movie, now showing at the Museum of Nature and Science in Denver, Colorado.

I had an opportunity to view the film last week, and I was generally impressed. If you like mountaineering, and you love mountains and glaciers, then you’ll enjoy this film. I won’t give anything away, but I will mention that the view on the IMAX screen, from the top of the Eiger straight down its 6,000 ft. vertical face, made more than one audience member squirm in their chair. Some of the mountain shots left me breathless. My only criticism; I could have done without the soundtrack by Queen. I like Queen, but I just didn’t like their music in this film.

Please visit our previous post for more background on the movie.

The Denver Museum of Nature & Science will continue to screen the The Alps until June 12, 2008.
Call 303.322.7009 for show times, or visit www.dmns.org for more information.
