Hawaii, America’s Paradise,” the first show in the LBCC Travel at the Tripp film series, on Sunday, Sept. 16 at 2 p.m. in the Linn-Benton Community College Russell Tripp Performance Center.
Mark Twain once said that Hawaii is “a string of tropical islands floating in just the right place.” Van Polen will take you to five main islands to see how each one is different: from towering volcanic peaks looming over fields of sugar cane and pineapple, to warm blue seas with some of the highest surf found anywhere.
Don and Fran Van Polen have photographed these islands for the last several years and now bring to you in digital video, not only beautiful scenery, but the fascinating stories and music of Hawaii.
Travel atthe Tripp is produced by LBCC Performing Arts and AAA Travel Services. Join the filmmaker and experts from AAA Travel after the show for a question and answer session, with prizes from AAA given at each show.
Volunteers with SafeHaven Humane Society will sell coffee, tea and homemade baked goods during the show’s intermission. Proceeds support SafeHaven Humane Society, Albany’s non-profit animal shelter.
Ticket prices are $8 for each show, $6.50 for students/seniors, or $25 for a season pass to all four films. All films will be shown on Sundays at 2 p.m. in the LBCC Russell Tripp Performance Center in Takena Hall, 6500 Pacific Blvd. SW, Albany.
