After two SOLD OUT shows at the Fairmont Resort earlier this month, The Dawn Wall is back in the Blue Mountains for an extra screening, this time at Mount Vic Flicks. Join us on 13 November for your last chance to see the film on the big screen.

More than just a climbing movie, The Dawn Wall is an epic and inspirational story that will take you into the hearts and minds of the protagonists and is to be enjoyed by all.

Get in quick to see this film described by Variety Magazine as "must see" that is 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Join us for one night only to see this critically acclaimed documentary feature film that is selling out around the country and featured at the Mountainfilm festival. 

In January 2015, American rock climbers Tommy Caldwell (author of The Push) 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 fulfil his ultimate dream, or risk his own success for the sake of their friendship?

More than just a climbing movie, The Dawn Wall is an epic and inspirational story that will take you into the hearts and minds of the protagonists and is to be enjoyed by all.
