Two new films in HD surround sound show recovery and wonder of Mount St. Helens

The Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument and Gifford Pinchot National Forest will host a public premier of two new films that depict the return of life and wonder of scientific discovery at Mount St. Helens.

The event starts at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 18 in the newly remodeled Johnston Ridge Observatory Theater.

The premier will begin with the first public viewing of a new six and a half minute introductory film that will show on overhead monitors in the hallway outside the main theater. Mount St. Helens: A Living Laboratory celebrates the wonder of scientific discovery in the unique living laboratory that is Mount St. Helens.

The introductory film will immediately precede the first public viewing of Mount St. Helens: Eruption of Life, a 17 minute, HD film telling the story of the amazing plant and animal life returning to the volcanic blast zone.

Forest Service officials and Monument Scientist, Peter Frenzen will be on hand to discuss the making of the new films and the collaborative effort that produced them.
