Luxury Liner

When: 2009

One might presume that a film titled Luxury Liner: The First Ascent of Supercrack might contain a soundtrack heavy on the "bam chicka wao-waos," if you get my drift. But one would be incorrect. The Supercrack in focus at 8 tonight in Colorado College's Cornerstone Arts Center (825 N. Cascade Ave., alstrinfilms.com) belongs not to a gyrating human, but a 300-foot vertical slab of sandstone in Southeast Utah's Indian Creek. The area is now internationally renowned for rock climbing, thanks to a handful of Colorado Springs pioneers who assisted Earl Wiggins on his first ascent in 1976. The film pairs a recent reunion at the crack with archival footage; $10 tickets are available at Mountain Chalet (226 N. Tejon St.) or the door. — Matthew Schniper
