Film Series

We are excited to present our 2018 outdoor adventure film series! The series will feature films that highlight adventurers and trail blazers of all backgrounds, genders, races, and abilities. Join us to celebrate the growing diversity in the outdoor community and to give back to organizations that support that growth.

Our 2018 film series will feature four films on the following Saturdays:

Doors open at 8pm. Films start at 8:30pm.

Each film screening will benefit a non-profit organization via:

  • 50/50 Raffle
  • $1 per beer purchased from East End Brewing at the event
  • Portion of proceeds from movie concessions

We are psyched to support organizations who increase access to adventure experiences for people of all backgrounds and abilities!

Each of the films is $10 for ASCEND Members and $12 for the general public. Tickets are required, limited in quantity, and ON SALE NOW. Please see the Community Calendar above to purchase tickets for individual films and to learn more.
