“King of Roads”, a video story celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Columbia River Highway, will debut February 24th at the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center and Wasco County History Museum. Scenic was a word used to describe the Historic Columbia River Highway (HCRH) from the very beginning. “King of Roads” creates a look and narration that elicits that original and on-going “scenic” vision by looking at the Gorge as a work of art.
The beauty of the Columbia River Gorge is a powerful draw for tourists, painters, photographers, songwriters. In that respect, the movie not only tells the story of roads in the Gorge, but also draw the viewer’s attention to scenic wonders and elements of history that are still present along the rebuilt HCRH.
The evening starts with a special dinner served at 6 PM, with the film showing at 7 PM.
Cost for a lasagna dinner and program is $16, or the program alone is $5.
Tickets for this event may be purchased by calling 541-296-8600 ext. 201 between 9:00 and 5:00 daily.
Reservations are required by February 22.
This is the premiere showing of the most recent production from Laughing Deva, a Gorge-based video production company. Find more information on the Discovery Center website
