Plot

"Join Lowell Thomas and follow in the footsteps of Marco Polo" in this new, digital restoration of SEARCH FOR PARADISE, the fourth of the original, three-panel Cinerama travelogues. Released in 1957, the motion picture takes you to the "Roof of the World," the Himalayas and Karakoram mountains of Central Asia, the highest region in the world. You'll become part of the adventure as explorer Lowell Thomas searches for paradise in the ancient cities, wild waters and lush gardens of the mountaintops. Your first stop is the Forbidden Kingdom of Hunza, a hidden valley bordered by China, Russia, India, Pakistan and Afghanistan, home to a legendary warrior tribe. Next, you'll challenge the rapids of the Mighty Indus River, fed from a fantastic galaxy of great glaciers draining from some of the greatest heights known to man. From there, find respite in the romantic Shalimar Gardens in the Vale of Kashmir, then fly to Katmandu for the coronation ceremony of King Mahendra of Nepal. The adventure concludes with a trip to a U.S. Air Force base, where Thunderbird jet planes cut across the sapphire blue sky overhead at supersonic speed. The film captures the imagination and paradise would be, beauty or adventure or peace.
