MAY FILM SERIES


DIRTBAG: THE LEGEND OF FRED BECKEY
MONDAY, MAY 21 | 7 PM

Fred Beckey is the original American "Dirtbag" climber whose name evokes mystery, adulation and vitriol. Beginning in the 1940s, Beckey led an obsessive and nomadic quest of innumerable first ascents, cementing his legacy as one of the greatest climbers of all time. This exclusive feature documentary follows the 94-year-old climber over the last decade, revealing both his public and private personas as he continues to inspire generations of climbers from around the world. Beckey, like so many people of great accomplishment, is a controversial figure, having alienated fellow climbers by stealing their routes (and even their girlfriends). While the film delves into those peccadilloes, it is ultimately an affectionate portrait of a remarkable man in the sunset of his career. 

Takes place at the Center for the Arts, 606 6th Street. (303) 204-9080

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Film starts at 7:00 p.m.
