CANADA’S GREAT BEAR RAINFOREST TAKES AUDIENCES ON A WONDER-FILLED JOURNEY TO ONE OF THE LAST WILD PLACES ON EARTH
CHICAGO (August 1, 2020)–Experience one of the planet’s most exquisite and secluded wildernesses in the new giant-screen documentary Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest at the Museum of Science and Industry’s Giant Dome Theater. From the underwater ocean world, through the salmon river valleys to the ice-capped peaks of the Coast Mountains, journey into a land of grizzlies, coastal wolves, sea otters and humpback whales – and discover the secret world of the Spirit Bear.
Hidden from 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.
Narrated by actor Ryan Reynolds, this unprecedented footage of the unspoiled, unsung wilderness of Canada’s primordial rainforest provides an experiential view of where ocean, forest, mountain and river meet in a mighty convergence. Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest celebrates a place that could only have thrived—and will only continue to thrive—through sustained co-existence between humans, land and sea animals and the natural environment.
Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest is a family-friendly film and shows daily at 12 p.m. and 3:35 p.m. To ensure physical distancing seating inside the Giant Dome Theater is capacity controlled. The Giant Dome Theater is not included in Museum Entry and requires an additional timed-entry ticket. For more details, visit msichicago.org/giantdome.
