Winter Film Program, April 24-25
It seems as though the Winter Film Flurry has run out of winter so please join us for the last weekend of films at Sitka National Historical Park. In our theater Saturday April 25th, the film Pu’uhonua O Honaunau: Place of Refuge tells the story of this Hawaiian sanctuary and highlights the beauty of the annual cultural celebration held in the park each year. On Sunday April 26th come watch Forever Wild and discover the natural and cultural history of Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve. These films will be shown on the hour, every hour, from 9am to 4pm. It is free and open to everyone, so stop by the visitor center before your walk through the park this coming weekend. For more information contact Chad Corey at 747-0110.
