Millennium Place Film Night - Apr 24, 2013
|Date:||Wednesday, April 24, 2013|
Every month Whistler Millennium Place host's a movie screening highlighting a deserving film that may otherwise be overlooked. This month's featured movie is Bones Brigade, directed by Stacy Peralta. Peralta also directed the ultra-popular Dog Town & Z Boys documentary and was a prominent skateboard pro when he was a young adult. Tickets for the film are $8 at the door. The film will be screened at 7PM in the theatre room.
Today skateboarding is omnipresent, but it wasn't always like that. In the early '80s, skateboarding was fading away until Stacy Peralta brought a profoundly talented group of outsiders together and dubbed them the Bones Brigade. This documentary chronicles their epic rise, using awesome archival footage and moving first-person accounts from Brigade members Steve Caballero, Tommy Guerrero, Tony Hawk, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain, and Rodney Mullen, among others. Through passion, drive, creativity, and a surprising sense of teamwork, they revitalized the sport and influenced generations to come. (Rating: NR, Running Time: 1hr 30min)
