Last year’s popular Ken Burns’ series “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea” is now available for public viewing on the big screen at Maho Bay Camps’ outdoor restaurant each Friday night throughout February and March.
This beautifully photographed series will be presented in conjunction with the V.I. National Parks each Friday at 8 p.m. and offered free of charge.
Originally aired on PBS this series is described as “a biography of compelling characters and a biography of the American landscape.”
“Nearly a decade in the making ‘The National Parks: America’s Best Idea’ is a visual feast, featuring some of the most extensive, breathtaking images of the national parks system every captured on film. It contains the most contemporary footage of any Ken Burns film since Lewis & Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery.”
Each night of the week the restaurant at Maho Bay Camps offers a selection of entrees always including a vegetarian option. The film series on Friday nights is scheduled the same night as the island-renown Prime Rib dinner frequented by guests and full-time residents alike.
Maho also offers free entertainment other evenings including live music on Mondays following Caribbean delicacies and a talk/slideshow given by Marine Biologist Jeff Miller on Tuesdays following Asian entrees.
