Would "Earthquake" (1975) count?

What about "Grand Canyon"?

And although it's not a feature film, I strongly recommend the short
(about 1/2 hour), funny documentary called _The Rise and Fall of the
Great Lakes_, in which nature writer/photographer Bill Mason appears as a
canoeist whose small craft gets bounced back and forth between the Ice
Age and the present day. It was produced by the National Film board of
Canada, and I think that they still distribute it in the U.S. If John
Sirabella, of the NFBC's New York office, is still on this list, he can
assist you in renting it.
