Movies go to the ex­treme

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Fans of ex­treme sport can ex­pe­ri­ence it on the big screen at SkyCity Theatre tonight.

The New Zealand Alpine Club is show­ing the latest ad­ven­ture and ex­treme sport doc­u­men­taries at 7.30pm.

The films all formed part of this year’s Banff Film Fes­ti­val at the Cana­dian moun­tain re­sort in the Rock­ies.

hey cover a range of ex­ploits, in­clud­ing ex­treme moun­tain bik­ing on a uni­cy­cle, pow­der ski­ing off ver­ti­cal slabs, ice climb­ing in aban­doned Nor­we­gian mines and cliff rock climb­ing with­out any ropes high above Greek wa­ters.

Peo­ple need to buy tick­ets in ad­vance as the event usu­ally sells out.

Tick­ets are $20 from Bivouac Out­door stores New­mar­ket, Queen St and Sylvia Park and Out­door Ac­tion, Barry’s Point Rd, Taka­puna.

Or buy them on­line at www.auck­land climber.org.nz.
