The movie: This fall Warren Miller Entertainment brings you its 67th winter sports film, Warren Miller’s . . . Here, There, and Everywhere www.skinet.com/warrenmiller/film-tour.This is your annual reminder that winter is on its way. Watch the trailer at warrenmiller.com. The show will be coming to the State Theatre, 805 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, 55402, on Friday, October 21 at 7:30pm. Sitzmark has bought tickets for our group! Our ticket price is $25 each (which is about $8 cheaper than buying them through TicketMaster – no handling fees!). Tickets are available through our website www.sitzmarkmn.org/skiing.html In years past, ticket holders received a free weekday lift ticket to Lutsen, Welch Village, Granite Peak and others. Make no mistake that it will sell out; in the last 4 years we’ve had about 40+ people come to the movie and happy hour. There is a great feeling of ski camaraderie at the theater, and it’s a good place to meet other skiers. The event will be open to SkiHawks and other MSC clubs, so plan to join us (and sign up early)! Happy hour at Crave downtown Minneapolis: Meet us before the show around 5:30 for dinner/happy hour/drinks before the movie at Crave and to pick up your tickets. This location is DOWNTOWN Minneapolis next to the State Theatre at 825 Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis (it is NOT in St. Louis Park!).
