Ski movie fans will be delighted to know Earl Grey Lodge will be screening this years Warren Miller film during the upcoming opening weekend at Panorama Mountain Resort.

Warren Millers movies are so iconic; they really create a buzz and we just wanted to embrace them, said Earl Grey Lodge co-owner Phil Marshall. We thought itd be fun for families and friends to start the season off by enjoying time together while taking in a great film.

The lodge will show the film in its new theatre, which it created during renovations this past fall and spring. The formerly-open kitchen is now somewhat enclosed (although still visible to customers), which allowed the lodge to not only increase its seating, but add a large screen up on the wall.

So we can now play movies in the big room, said Mr. Marshall. The lodges chandelier is now mechanized and, by simply pushing a button, Mr. Marshall can lower the chandelier by about four feet (1.2 metres), taking it out of the way of viewers in the dining room.

This years Warren Miller film, No Turning Back, marks Mr. Millers 65th ski movie, and pays homage to how the ski industry has altered drastically in 65 years since 1949 when skis didnt even have edges.

There are two screenings of No Turning Back at Earl Grey Lodge: one on Friday, December 12th and the other on Saturday, December 13th. The Friday event is $15 per person for tickets purchased beforehand, or $20 per person at the door, with doors opening at 5 p.m. The movie starts at 6:30 p.m. with cocktails, appetizers and platters available, followed by an electro-swing party.

The Saturday event includes a three-course meal along with the film, and costs $69.95 per person for adults, and $28.95 per person for a kids menu. Doors open at 5 p.m. on Saturday with the film starting at 6:15 p.m. By ThePioneers Wednesday press deadline, both shows were already more than 50 per cent sold out.

Mr. Marshall plans to use the theatre to screen other movies throughout the winter season, potentially including old black and white horror films.
