Warren Miller's 'Timeless'

The Egyptian Theatre, Nov. 21-23

by

The late filmmaker Warren Miller got his start right here in Idaho, living out of a car in a Sun Valley parking lot in the late 1940s. Miller was making cartoons and selling them for 10 cents at the time, until he saved enough money for a small film camera to shoot ski movies. With no sound, Miller would narrate the movies live when he showed them. His iconic voice became the backdrop to all of his movies over the years, which would become the biggest ski features in the world. The newest installment in the Warren Miller universe is Timeless, which premieres at The Egyptian Theatre Thursday, Nov. 21. Miller's films don't simply capture big ski lines and death-defying feats on snow, but the spirit and importance of skiing to the communities that surround it.

Thursday, Nov. 21, 7 p.m.; Friday, Nov. 21, 7 p.m.; Saturday, Nov. 22, 4:30 and 7:30 p.m., $15. The Egyptian Theatre, 700 W. Main St., Boise, egyptiantheatre.net.
