Enjoyed this 30-minute movie. Well put together with interesting information. Will say they avoided details of any unsuccessful over-the-falls events/ tragedies. Worth the viewing if you purchase the Discovery Pass.

Since this was part of the Discovery Pass we went to this first to get some history of Niagara Falls. Although it was interesting to see the antics of the dare devils we were disappointed to not be able to learn about the history behind what created the falls.

Not bad but needs to be updated with better technology, grainy movie, but good story line. Would like to have seen more documentary type info.

Welcome respite as other activities involve a lot of walking. This film is a great break midday. The film was interesting in that it focused more on human geography and history. The stories were interesting and the theater is nice. A great history of the human events surrounding the falls. Its not too long and will break up the day... More

This was part of the Discovery Pass, and surprisingly my daughter wanted to see it (I think because she was tired of walking). It was an interesting overview of the Falls. My 6 year old even thought it was interesting. I probably would not have gone if I did not have the pass.

I enjoyed this movie better than the one in the discovery center... it was more interesting and seemed to go by faster. I wouldn't buy the tickets to this unless you already have the city pass tickets. It should be free.

One of the best attractions on the American side. It was a great short film on a large screen about the history of the Falls. It is a part of the pass, so you may as well catch it.

We liked the re-enactment of history and short course on Niagara's origins very much. Like other places at the falls, luckily, it wasn't crowded here.
