Sherbino Theater Presents The Dawn Wall on February 26

Sherbino Theater is excited to host the acclaimed film “The Dawn Wall” on February 26. The Dawn Wall presents legendary Free Climber Tommy Caldwell as he tries to get over heartbreak by scaling 3000ft of an impossible rock face: the dawn wall of El Capitan.

In January, 2015, American rock climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson captivated the world with their effort to climb the Dawn Wall, a seemingly impossible 3,000 foot rock face in Yosemite National Park, California. The pair lived on the sheer vertical cliff for weeks, igniting a frenzy of global media attention. But for Tommy Caldwell, the Dawn Wall was much more than just a climb. It was the culmination of a lifetime defined by overcoming obstacles. At the age of 22, the climbing prodigy was taken hostage by rebels in Kyrgyzstan. Shortly after, he lost his index finger in an accident, but resolved to come back stronger. When his marriage fell apart, he escaped the pain by fixating on the extraordinary goal of free climbing the Dawn Wall. Blurring the line between dedication and obsession, Caldwell and his partner Jorgeson spend six years meticulously plotting and practicing their route. On the final attempt, with the world watching, Caldwell is faced with a moment of truth. Should he abandon his partner to fulfill his ultimate dream, or risk his own success for the sake of their friendship?  

This presentation has been presented as part of Citizen’s State Bank Outdoor Recreation Series along with being underwritten by Ouray Climbers Alliance, an Access Fund affiliated nonprofit.
 
The Dawn Wall will be presented on February 26 at Sherbino Theater. Doors will open at 6 pm, and films will begin at 7 pm. Advance tickets are available at sherbino.org and advance purchase is recommended.
