The best high adrenaline films from the Banff Mountain Film Festival are coming to Courtenay!

The Sid Williams Theatre Society presents the Radical Reels Tour, part of the theatre society’s Blue Circle Series, on Sunday March 6 at 7 p.m.

There is no better way to get stoked about skiing, biking, riding, or paddling than by the 2016 edition of the Radical Reels Tour! We’re talking jaw-dropping bike jumps, nail-biting kayak drops, and mind-blowing powder. The Radical Reels Tour, presented by The Banff Centre, continues to push boundaries with the best action sports films from the annual Banff Mountain Film Festival.
