“Grand Canyon: The Hidden Secrets” dramatizes the adventure and discovery of the National Park, with thundering sound and breathtaking footage giving visitors an exciting glimpse of what lies beyond the entrance. The IMAX® Theater is one of the first of its kind ever built, and is designed to accommodate large groups in a comfortable, temperature controlled environment.
In only 34 minutes, viewers will discover a Grand Canyon that would take a lifetime to experience. This IMAX movie opens with the beginning of man’s fragile kinship with the twisting 277 mile Grand Canyon in Arizona, then moves the audience through time with brief glimpses at the stone pages of human history. From the mysterious Anasazi who inhabited the Canyon 4,000 years ago, viewers at The National Geographic Visitor Center will travel through Grand Canyon history to join Major John Wesley Powell as he challenges the unexplored Canyon and raging Colorado River in 1869.
