CLEVELAND  (October 15, 2019) – In the remote, moss-draped forests of Canada’s Pacific Coast lies one of the planet’s most exquisite and secluded wildernesses – the Great Bear Rainforest. Hidden from the outside world, this wild sanctuary is home to a stunning and diverse array of wildlife, including the fabled all-white Spirit Bear – the rarest bear on Earth. 
Experience the largest temperate coastal rainforest in the world in an adventure narrated by actor Ryan Reynolds when “Great Bear Rainforest” opens in the Cleveland Clinic DOME Theater at Great Lakes Science Center on Friday, November 1. 
From the underwater ocean world, through the salmon river valleys to the ice-capped peaks of the Coast Mountains, journey into a world of bears, coastal wolves, sea otters and humpback whales and discover the secret world of the Spirit Bear and the indigenous First Nations people who have provided stewardship of the forest for millennia. 
“The Great Bear Rainforest is one of the last truly wild places left on Earth, and has immense value both ecologically and culturally,” said director Ian McAllister. “Many people don’t know about this ancient rainforest and the indigenous people who have helped protect it for thousands of years. We hope audiences will leave theaters inspired that an extraordinary world of such natural wonder and splendor still exists.” 
“Great Bear Rainforest” is the first time this pristine wildlife-rich world will be experienced in giant-screen cinemas. The film features music composed and arranged by legendary Academy Award winning composer Hans Zimmer and Anze Rozman for Bleeding Fingers Music.  
“Great Bear Rainforest” is a Spirit Bear Entertainment film presented by Seaspan in association with Destination British Columbia and distributed by MacGillivray Freeman Films. It is a familyfriendly film with a runtime of 40 minutes. For showtimes and tickets please visit and for more information on the film visit
