Sun setting over Grand Canyon featuring ochre and purple colors

Hike the Grand Canyon at Santa Monica’s Historic Broad Stage Theater

If we were compiling a list of the Seven Wonders of the Americas, the Grand Canyon would certainly be near the top. In recent years, however, this iconic geological formation has been increasingly threatened by human development. In an effort to document the sublime beauty of the canyon and educate the public about challenges to its existence as we know it, acclaimed photographer and filmmaker Pete McBride spent a year hiking more 700 miles through Grand Canyon National Park. On the evenings of Thursday, March 15, and Friday, March 16, Pete and his collaborator, travel-writer Kevin Fedarko, will be unveiling their film The Canyon at The Broad Stage theater’s main stage, the 499-seat performance arts venue right here in Santa Monica. This ticketed event, which is jointly sponsored by National Geographic and The Great Courses and Grand Canyon Trust, is sure to thrill both nature and documentary-film enthusiasts.

Address: 1310 11th St, Santa Monica, CA 90401
