Get your adrenaline rush at Radical Reels film tour stop

Some of the best high-adrenaline films from the Banff Mountain Film Festival are coming to Olympia Saturday.

The Radical Reels Film Tour will make a stop at the Capitol Theater, screening 11 films of varying lengths.

Here are some of the films to be shown in Olympia:

In “Desert Ice,” ice climbers explore the remote high-desert slot canyons of Southwest Utah in search of what some are calling the best water-ice discovery of the last 20 years.

“The Unrideables” is 18 minutes of cinematographic eye candy as expert speed flyers test their limits in a massive, volatile landscape of ice and snow.

Just two minutes long, “Into the Ditch” captures the thrill of two friends kayaking at breakneck speeds down a 500-foot drainage ditch.

In the Austrian film “Undead,” two young athletes take on the sport of SMX, a combination of mountain biking and snowboarding.

“Valley Uprising” tells the story of Yosemite’s legendary “Stonemasters,” who ushered in a raucous new era of climbing marked by drugs, partying, battles with park authorities and some of the world’s hardest climbing.

“All My Own Stunts” is the emotional story of a downhill mountain biker and professional stuntman who fought to stay atop both fields after a near-fatal accident.

Attendees should note some of the films are rated PG for coarse language.

The doors will open at 6 p.m., with the films beginning at 7 p.m. The theater is at 206 Fifth Ave. SE, Olympia.

Tickets are $14, with a $2 discount for members of the Mountaineers or Olympia Film Society, and for students or military with identification.

You can get tickets in advance at Centro, 408 Olympia Ave. NE, or at olympiafilmsociety.org. They will also be available at the door the night of the show.

This tour stop is sponsored by The Olympia Mountaineers and Centro, in partnership with the Olympia Film Society.
