TEST SCREENINGS: Saturday, September 29, 2012 in Estes Park was a perfect early autumn day. Elkfest was in full swing and apparently Rocky Mountain National Park was handing out free passes. Against those odds, a good-sized crowd joined us for the matinee test screening. Nothing however prepared us for the evening performance.
Ticketholders began lining up outside the theatre an hour before showtime. Within ten minutes of opening the doors, we'd run out of programs. And by the time the house lights dimmed, one of the best crowds of the summer season filled the auditorium.
After each screening, audience members completed survey cards, on which they gave the film an average score of 4.5 (on a scale of 1 to 5) and provided the following comments:
"Loved the narration" • "The score is magnificent"
"Outstanding research and script" • "Attention to detail was impeccable"
"Loved the cinematography" • "The film shots were awesome!"
"Amazing blending of historic and contemporary photographs"
"This is something that begs to be viewed more than once"
"Could be an American Experience series!"
"I want more!" • "Great job! Publish a book!"
"The film touched my heart"
"Haunting" • "Awesome!"
