Tickets on sale now: $10 adult,, 303-987-7845 or at the Box Office

Take a fantastic tropical journey from the comfort of the Lakewood Cultural Center’s beautiful 316-seat theater. Filmmaker Sandy Mortimer guides the audience through an intimate point-of-view journey through breathtaking beauty and the engaging people of Costa Rica. Through Mortimer’s brilliant cinematography and live narration, you will stop to meet locals, hear their stories and soak up the country’s wild offerings.

Located in the center of Central America, Costa Rica nurtures some of the last remaining natural treasures of the world. Emerald rainforests abound with rainbow-colored wildlife, and mountain ranges with milky cloud forests hosting spectacular volcano environments give way to sandy tropical beaches. All together these wonders create the colors that have lured visitors to Costa Rica’s shores and interior again and again. Of course, it is the people with their unusual friendliness and heartfelt hospitality that make any visit to Costa Rica special. With more than 25 percent of its total land set aside as protected ecosystem, Costa Rica is unique in Central America. Mortimer explores both the Pacific and Caribbean coasts, with almost everything in between, to capture the essence and ecological richness that is Costa Rica.

Tickets are $10 and are available at 303-987-7845, or the Lakewood Cultural Center Box Office, 470 S. Allison Parkway (Wadsworth and West Alameda Avenue). Student, senior and group discounts are available. Ample, free parking.

The 2013-2014 Lakewood Cultural Center Presents season is generously supported by the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD), with appreciation to the citizens of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, 5280 Magazine and the Denver Post Community, improving and enriching the lives of those in our community.
