Welcome to our Newly Added Virtual Series for Fall 2021
Virtual Passes for $56 will be good for 7 films, six an encore virtual presentation of our in-person films and one substitute film for CLAYDREAM which we are not permitted to screen virtually. Our 7th film is the exciting and very emotional TORN, about the mountain climber Alex Lowe, who died in an avalanche in 1970, directed by his eldest son Max Lowe. (*see summary below). It will be virtually presented on Monday, November 8th.
All virtual films are $10. Each film will begin at 7pm on the night after our in-person screening and will be available to watch for a 24 hour period. Due to our licensing agreements with distributors and filmmakers, each film may have restrictions as to where tickets can be sold. If you buy a ticket outside this area, we will have to refund your money. Also, we are limited in the number of virtual tickets we may sell, so screenings, although virtual, may sell out.
CLICK HERE to find out more info about each of the six virtual encore films from the live screening information page. Scroll down to see the information on TORN.
We will include a pre-recorded Q&A wherever possible and bonus material for some of the films.

*Summary for Torn
Directed by Max Lowe (son of Alex Lowe)
On Oct. 5, 1999, legendary climber Alex Lowe was tragically lost alongside cameraman and fellow climber David Bridges in a deadly avalanche on the slopes of the Tibetan mountain, Shishapangma. Miraculously surviving the avalanche was Alex’s best friend and climbing partner, renowned mountaineer Conrad Anker. After the tragedy, Anker and Alex’s widow, Jennifer, fell in love and married, and Anker stepped in to help raise Alex’s three sons. TORN will deliver a profoundly intimate look at the Lowe-Anker family using never-before-released archival footage of the ill-fated 1999 expedition, early footage of Alex and Anker as young climbers, personal home videos and strikingly candid interviews with the Lowe-Ankers, the film will follow Max in his quest to understand his iconic late father as he explores the family’s complex relationships in the wake of his father’s death.
Running Time: 92 minutes
