Yesterday, the provincial health order was changed to now include movie theatres, therefore we have been asked to cease all operations until December 7th. This includes private bookings as well as our regular screenings every weekend. If you bought tickets for a show that has now been cancelled, please email us at info@thekfs.ca for a refund if you’d like one. Thank you for your understanding during this time, and we’ll see you when this health order is lifted.

This Mountain Life

This Mountain Life

September 5, 6, 10, 12, 13, 17, 19, 20, 24, 26, 27 @ 6:45pm

Martina Halik and her 60 year old mother, Tania, embark on a six-month ski trek through the treacherous Coast Mountains of British Columbia. This journey has only been completed once before, and never by a female duo. Woven through their arduous and uplifting story are vignettes of others who have chosen a mountain life: a group of nuns inhabiting a mountain retreat to be closer to God; a photographer buried in an avalanche; an impassioned alpinist; a focused snow artist; and a couple who has been living off grid in the mountains for nearly 50 years. What is it that leads these adventurous people to sacrifice everything - comfort, family, personal safety - for a life in the mountains?
