In the high-stakes game of big-wall climbing, The Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru may be the ultimate prize. It has seen more failed attempts by elite climbers over the past 30 years than any other ascent in the Himalayas - making it both a nightmare and an irresistible siren song for the world’s best climbers. In October 2008, Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk started what was meant to be a seven-day trip. It became a 20-day odyssey in sub-zero temperatures and 10 feet of fallen snow. And that was only round one. Directed by  Jimmy Chin and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi.

This film is sponsored by Irwin Guides.

Running time 90 minutes.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. $10 tickets sold at the door, in advance at the Center for the Arts, or online below.

We invite you to revisit one of the most compelling and controversial films of 2015, Lenny Abrahamson's Room, the film that earned Brie Larson an Academy Award for Best Actress. Larson stars as a mother held captive for seven years who tries to "normalize" the surroundings for her 5-year-old son - while also plotting his escape. Both highly suspenseful and deeply emotional, Room is a unique and touching exploration of the boundless love between a mother and her child - one that ultimately brings them face-to-face with what may turn out to be the scariest thing yet: the real world.

Running time 118 minutes.

Doors open at 6:30 PM. $10 tickets sold at the door, in advance at the Center for the Arts, or online below.
