Into the Wild: Exploring How People Interact with Landscapes and Nature—Both Real and Imagined
Cape Cod National Seashore will kick off its annual winter film festival on Sunday, January 19 with the blockbuster film, Dances with Wolves. Each winter a different theme or genre is explored, and this year's focus is how people interact with landscapes and nature - both real and imagined. Films will show on six consecutive Sundays at 1:30 PM on the theatre-size screen at Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham. Refreshments will be provided 30 minutes prior to each film. The movies are free, thanks to generous funding from Friends of the Cape Cod National Seashore.
In most cases, a group size greater than 8 may not participate in programs offered to the general public, unless the programs are suitable for large groups such as park films, campfire programs, auditorium, and amphitheater programs.
