FREE SOLO (J. CHINN & E.C. VASARHELYI, 2018, CERT 12A)
Stow Film Lounge is absolutely delighted to be working with the Wild Card Brewery to bring you our award-winning pop-up cinema in another exciting venue. Our screenings continue with this quite breathtaking documentary.
A stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of free soloist climber Alex Honnold as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world’s most famous rock – the 3,200 foot El Capitan in Yosemite National Park … without a rope.
Celebrated as one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, Honnolds’s climb set the ultimate standard: perfection or death. The film is an edge-of-your-seat thriller and an inspiring portrait of an athlete who challenges both his body and his beliefs on a quest to triumph over the impossible, revealing the personal toll of excellence. The result is a triumph of the human spirit that represents what The New York Times calls “a miraculous opportunity for the rest of us to experience the human sublime.”
The Wild Card bar and pizza ovens will be open as usual. We will be serving freshly made popcorn, hotdogs and ice-creams.
