The Pajarito Environmental Education Center and Reel Deal Theater present a special showing of the acclaimed documentary “Free Solo” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1.
This stunning film follows climber Alex Honnold as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream of climbing El Capitan … without a rope. Pajarito Brewpub will serve beer and wine at this event and the ticket sales will serve as a fundraiser for PEEC.
Tickets are available for purchase now at the Reel Deal Theater and are $10 in advance and $12 the day of the screening.
“Free Solo” is a National Geographic Documentary Film from filmmaker E. Chair Vasarhelyi (“MERU”) and photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin and is a stunning and intimate portrait of Honnold’s journey to free soloing El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. His climb has been lauded as one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, setting the ultimate standard of perfection or death.
