An Evening with Ken Burns: The National Parks

August 28, 2016 @ 6:00 PM - 9:30 PM MDT

Join us for this special film screening of episode 5 of The National Parks: America’s Best Idea and a discussion with award-winning, documentary film director Ken Burns.


Pre-sales have closed, but there are still tickets available at the Palm. Doors open at 5:30.

Ken Burns has been making documentary films for more than 30 years. Since the Academy Award-nominated Brooklyn Bridge in 1981, he has gone on to direct and produce some of the most acclaimed historical documentaries ever made.

Burns was the director, producer, co-writer, chief cinematographer, musical director and executive producer of the landmark television series The Civil War. The film was the highest-rated series in the history of American public television – prior to Baseball, and attracted an audience of 40 million during its premiere in September 1990. The New York Times called it a “masterpiece,” and that Burns, takes his place as the most accomplished documentary filmmaker of his generation.”

Some of Burns’ other films include, The Address (2014), The Central Park Five (2013), Jackie Robinson (2016), Prohibition, (2011), and The War (2007), which was co-directed with Lynn Novick.

Book and DVD sales will also be available courtesy of the Between the Covers Bookstore.

All tickets will be available at will call.  Physical tickets will not be sent out ahead of the event.
