ARC Climbing Yoga Fitness will transform its 35-foot-high climbing wall into a huge movie screen Nov. 16 to host the Reel Rock Film Tour as a fundraiser for Climb Sudbury, a local climbing club in Sudbury.
Founded in 2005 by filmmakers Josh Lowell and Peter Mortimer, REEL ROCK has grown into the premiere global platform for award-winning climbing films that weave bold action, humor, heart, and soul into larger-than-life human stories for a wide audience, from the core climber to the armchair mountaineer.
From feature documentaries like The Dawn Wall and Valley Uprising to surprising shorts like Dodo’s Delight and Alone on the Wall, REEL ROCK films have earned dozens of festival awards, rave reviews, and even Emmy’s.
Reel Rock at ARC will be a fundraiser for Climb Sudbury, the unofficial outdoor climbing club of Sudbury. Proceeds will go towards the maintenance of existing crags, access and trail work and the establishment of new crags and routes.
“We are so excited to see the development of news crags and the increase of enthusiastic and strong climbers in Sudbury,” said ARC Climbing Yoga Fitness general manager Angie Keefe, in a press release.
“Climb Sudbury has been instrumental to the growth of the climbing community.”
Doors to the event open at 6:30 p.m., and films start at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $20 each, and can be purchased online or in person at the door.
There will be food and drinks available for purchase and prize raffles and giveaways during intermission.
