The program will be shown at the Olympic National Park Visitor Center at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Additional viewings will be available on request.


The visitor center is located at 3002 Mount Angeles Road, Port Angeles. It is open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily.


"This is an excellent film and a great way to remember and learn more about Dr. King’s life and contributions," Olympic National Park

Superintendent Karen Gustin said in a news release. "I warmly invite our visitors and neighbors to enjoy the film, and to enjoy all of Olympic over this holiday weekend."


Other park facilities will also be open throughout the holiday weekend. Weather permitting, the Hurricane Ridge Road and Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center are scheduled to be open 9 a.m. until dusk, Friday through Monday this weekend, the release said. The snack bar and ski rental shop and downhill ski area (rope tows only) are also scheduled to be open, weather permitting.
