Visitors to Niagara Falls State Park have a new attraction to see.

New to them, anyway.

A movie about the history of Niagara Falls that has been playing for the last 20 years on the Canadian side of the cataract has been brought to a new theater inside the Orin Lehman Visitor Center.

The film’s owners, a company that produces and runs theaters in tourist destinations in different parts of the globe, boasts that 14 million people have already seen the film.

“Niagara: Legends of Adventure” was first shown to visitors in the state park in May and was previewed for politicians, park officials and reporters on Thursday.

“Any attraction like this helps bring people here and keep them here longer,” said Mark Thomas, director of the state parks’ operations in the Niagara Region.

The 40-minute film, produced in 1985 by Kieth Merrill, was rebranded by Destination Cinema, which owns the film and won a state contract to show a movie inside the visitor center. The movie was originally dedicated to the Niagara Parks Commission, the organization that operates parks on the Canadian side.

The film recalls the legend of Lilawala, a Native American who is thought to have run away from an arranged marriage, hopped on a boat and traveled over the falls.

The Maid of the Mist company named its first boats after the woman.

Stories of Annie Edson Taylor, the teacher who went over the falls in a barrel and survived and Blondin, the man who walked across the cataract on a tightrope and lived are also recounted.

The most dramatic part of the film is a reenactment of the rescue of 7-year-old Roger Woodward by tourists and operators of the Maid of the Mist. The boy went over the falls in 1961 when his boat capsized.

Destination Cinema spent $500,000 to renovate the 275-seat Adventure Theater, purchase a new projection system and install a 45-foot by 25-foot screen and surround sound.

The film is expected to be shown for the duration of the five-year contract, which contains an option for a five-year renewal, according to Murray Mold, marketing director for Destination Cinema.

Headsets are available for speakers of other languages and the hearing impaired.

Previously, a movie from the History Channel was shown in the visitor center.

“We’re delighted to have something new to promote,” said Kate Scaglione, director of marketing and communications for the Niagara Tourism and Convention Corporation.

The film is part of the “Passport to the Falls,” which is a pass sold at the visitors center and is good for admission to the Cave of the Winds, Maid of the Mist, Discovery Center, Observation Tower, Aquarium of Niagara and the Scenic Trolley.

Destination Cinema owns and operates theaters in the Grand Canyon, at the Hearst Castle in California and has produced films shown in Hawaii and Egypt.
