PI 365 – ‘Volcanoes, the Fires of Creation’

Local News

You don’t see many volcanic eruptions when visiting Presque Isle State Park, but that’s about to change… Thanks to a movie that brings you up close and personal with one of the most powerful forces in nature.

One of the rawest forces in nature will be on display through April following the February 16th release of ‘Volcanoes, the Fires of Creation’.  

The film is a 45-minute trip into the heart of an erupting volcano and it’s not as foreign to Presque Isle as you might think.  It’s about changing the landscape and what Mother Nature does with lava in a volcano, she does with wind and waves on Presque Isle.

Anne Desarro of Presque Isle State Park says, “Places that are very dynamic where land is growing and disappearing are very interesting geographically and scientifically so we’re very excited”.

The movie gives viewers access to a force of nature rarely seen up close.  But, when that experience is shown on the Big Green Screen, supporters say that experience rises to a whole new level.

Desarro tells us, “It’s really a great experience on the Big Green Screen because it’s such a large format screen and it’s very immersive, especially how close you get to sit to the screen. So, you really get to see the details of the volcano as the explosions and everything like that; really very exciting.”

‘Volcanos, the Fires of Creation’ runs from February 16th to April 26th.  It’s $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and kids 3-12.  Showtimes are 10am, 1pm, and 4pm.
