Come See Warren Miller's Latest Film at the Castro Theatre!

Our series of pre-season warm-up events to whet your appetite for those snowy slopes includes a screening of the latest Warren Miller ski film Off the Grid.

In case you haven't seen a Warren Miller ski film before, you are guaranteed a real thrill. His annual film features incredibly difficult and dramatic extreme skiing and boarding, shot in some of the world’s most breathtaking mountain venues. (He also typically includes some shots of boarders zooming down railings or concrete stairs.)

About the Narrator, Jeremy Bloom

" Freestyle skier Jeremy Bloom completed a phenomenal run of six wins in a row on the World Cup mogul's circuit, including a title on the same course that he faced at the Winter Olympics in Turino, Italy. Given the intensity of competition at that level, you'd probably assume that the 24-year-old Coloradan has to focus on skiing to the exclusion of everything else. However, he is already a World Cup mogul champion, an Olympian, a Tommy Hilfiger model and a promising TV personality. Currently in training camp with the Philadelphia Eagles, Bloom is now making his dream come true as a professional football player. "

About the movie

" This year Warren Miller's 57th annual feature film Off the Grid will take its viewers to remote locations around the globe. The world's best skiers and riders travel the world skiing and riding big mountains, steep terrain and deep powder. India, Austria, and Switzerland are a few of the remote locations that this years film visits, which highlights ground breaking material from US Free skier Open, Olympic trials and backcountry cliff drops that will have you dropping your jam. Kick the season off this year as Warren Miller takes us Off the Grid."
