      Doors@6:30pm, Ski Movie@7:30 The skills, backstories and mindsets of four elite free skiers?a renowned veteran, a stunning rookie, a mind-blowing innovator and a big mountain star carrying on his father?s legacy ?are all captured in oversized personal segments based largely around each skier?s home turf. Each skier brings a different style and outlook to the table, but they all have one thing in common: they love to send?er. The body of the movie showcases some of the most progressive big and small mountain skiing filmed to date, setting the stage for the end of the season when all four skiers unite for the mother of all heliskiing trips. . Starring: Mark Abma, Karl Fostvedt, Sam Kuch and Logan Pehota Shot on Location: Selkirk Tangiers BC, Whistler BC, Revelstoke BC, Jackson Hole WY, Squaw Valley CA, Sun Valley ID and Whitewater Resort BC. ...read more

      Royal Opera favorite Bryn Terfel heads the cast for this new production of Donizetti?s comedy of domestic drama across two generations. The witty story of a middle-aged man whose supposed young wife runs rings around him ? with her own ulterior romantic purpose in mind ? has long delighted and surprised audiences. Damiano Michieletto?s exhilarating production shows how contemporary the characters still are and how immediate and touching the story remains. Join us at The Gem for our first operatic performance on the big screen on Sunday, November 24th. We'll have a social at 3pm and the opera at 4pm. You can find out more about the opera and characters here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cE_VJD9aHpo ...read more
