REEL ROCK brings climbing flicks to Mountain View

From Budapest to Birmingham, Santiago to St. Louis, the 2015 REEL ROCK film festival is touching down around the world this month to thrill audiences with a touch of vertical fever.

One of the premiere rock climbing film fests, REEL ROCK will bring a curated collection of climbing films to the Mountain View Center of the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St., on Monday, Oct. 12, at 7 p.m.

This year's lineup features films of big walls, big boulders and big moves from world-class climbers, including Tommy Caldwell, Kevin Jorgeson, Alex Honnold and Daniel Woods. But you don't have to know a thing about these guys to get an adrenaline rush off their bodacious high-ball bouldering, free climbing feats and epic journeys up jagged Alpine routes. Plus, it's not just screenings: Come prepared for prize giveaways, athlete and filmmakers appearances and a party-like atmosphere.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the ticket office, over the phone or online. Go to goo.gl/sdvAF2 or call 650-903-6000.

We can't do it without you.
