When: Sat., Nov. 19 2011
Ski enthusiasts, rejoice! The Akron Civic Theatre has the cure for your winter fever: Ski-Fest 2011. Beginning today at 6:30 p.m., the Civic's grand lobby will be overtaken by an avalanche of vendors touting ski gear and resorts. Check them out, then stick around for an exclusive 8 p.m. screening of Warren Miller's ski-action film Like There's No Tomorrow, shot on location on five continents and narrated by Olympic gold medalist Jonny Moseley. Created to capture the thrills, beauty, and athleticism of that perfect jump or run, the film has been a hit with casual skiers and competitors alike. "We welcome winter with everything we've got," says director-producer Max Bervy. "because, while there's always a tomorrow, there are only so many dawns with fresh snow." Tickets are $11 in advance by phone, online, or at the box office, or $15 at the door. For more information, see the Civic's website. — Logan Boggs 182 South Main St., 330-253-2488, Akroncivic.com.
