Free Solo (Members’ Choice)

September 17

Outstanding Oscar-winning documentary of climber Alex Honnold’s solo, ropeless ascent of sheer 3000 feet El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. We watch the meticulous preparations and planning, the false starts and setbacks in a study of courage, skill and the single-mindedness of striving to achieve what no one else has. This crowd-pleasing doc with stunning visuals and edge-of-your-seat tension truly needs to be seen on the big screen to appreciate the risk and beauty, both actual and existential, of the undertaking.

‘The magnificent final fifteen minutes of the movie [is] scary and exhilarating stuff.’
