Had hoped to see a stunning movie on Zion, but instead it was a somewhat silly fictionalized movie on Zion history that lasted only 40 min.

I can't believe how disappointing that Zion movie was - just go see the free 22 minute movie at the museum in the park. The movie was kinda all over the place, and some of it contradicted the park movie. After long focus on the history of the place, it suddenly jumped to people rock climbing - without helmets, which is completely irresponsible - showing a ridiculous staged "fall" - then on to someone hang gliding through the park, interspersed with too "up close" shots from a plane. Nothing on how most people might use the park - hiking trails, going up the narrows, the slot canyons, camping, canyoneering, etc. I didn't feel like I got to see parts of the park I wouldn't otherwise see, because mostly they didn't tell you what you were looking at.

Saw the 22 minute show on the canyon's history on the largest screen I have experienced short of Imax. The movie was Informative and somewhat entertaining.

Watch the 40 minute movie about Zion. If you stay at the Cable Mountain Lodge the entrance is free, otherwise it's $5. Totally worth it, the screen is huge, and the movie gives insight and history about the park. We really enjoyed it.

See the 40 minute presentation about the lore and history of Zion Canyon. It's a well done documentary, with a little whimsy and a lot of beautiful photography of parts of the park not available to visitors.
