The park recently rolled out its new orientation film, Grand Canyon: A Journey of Wonder, in a cozy new theater adjacent to the main Visitor Center at Mather Point. Produced and directed by Joshua Colover of Aperture Films, Ltd., the twenty-minute film features stellar footage of the canyon, a wealth of fun facts and figures, and a crisp narration delivered by actor Peter Coyote.
I watched it for the first time with about thirty visitors on a Sunday afternoon. The handful I queried afterwards were duly impressed. The film rotates throughout the day, every day of the week, and it is sure to be a hit for years to come. Admission is free.
