Sneak Peek of Steven Spielberg’s War Horse Dec. 22 at the Palm
TELLURIDE – Steven Spielberg’s epic adventure feature film, War Horse, will screen in an exclusive holiday presentation on Thursday, Dec. 22, at 7 p.m., at the Palm Theatre.
Released nationally on Christmas Day, War Horse provides a unique perspective on World War I, through the eyes of a horse as he journeys through the upheaval of World War I, beginning with his remarkable friendship with a young man. That journey continues, as he travels through the British cavalry, the German military and spends time with a French farmer.
Full of high adventure, the film is at times hopeful and sorrowful as this magnificent animal moves between warring factions, inspiring everyone he touches.
An epic story of war and friendship, War Horse was a popular children’s book before it was staged by the Royal National Theatre; now on Broadway, War Horse triumphed at the 2011 Tony Award Ceremonies.
The sneak peek of this family film is made available by Disney and the Kennedy/Marshall Company. Advance tickets are available at www.telluridepalm.com, and on the night of the show. To guarantee seating, advance purchase is highly recommended. Rated PG-13; 146 minutes.

Ski and Board ‘Like There’s No Tomorrow’ Warren Miller’s 62nd Adrenaline Film at the Sheridan Opera House Friday, Dec. 23
TELLURIDE – The pressure's off. No one's watching. It's just you, your boards and the mountain. The weather has broken and the snow is untracked. The only sound is that of your breath crystalizing in the winter air. There's only one place to go, but there's an infinite number of ways to get there. Adjust your gear, take a deep breath, and ride…like there’s no tomorrow.
For the sixty-second year in a row, Warren Miller Entertainment brings an adrenaline film from peaks as far-flung as India and as nearby as New Hampshire. Like There’s No Tomorrow, presented in HD, perfect for the whole family, shows twice, on Friday, Dec. 23, at the Sheridan Opera House, at 6 and 9 p.m.
Its common themes are snow, steeps and the skiers and snowboarders who throw themselves into both, with an abandon that amazes and inspires us all.
Like There’s No Tomorrow is a celebration of the moment. Join Chris Davenport, Daron Rahlves, Colby West, Andy Mahre, Seth Wescott, Julia Mancuso, and more as they drop into the runs we see in our dreams. Hosted by Jonny Moseley and shot on location in Colorado, Utah, California, New Zealand, Chile, Alaska and British Columbia, this film is our annual reminder that winter is on its way and, with it, months of an adrenaline-fueled dance with gravity.
