The Vilar Performing Arts Center will return with winter programming, showing movies as COVID-19 has halted musician touring schedules, which would typically carry the VPAC through the fall offseason and the holidays.

Tickets for each show range from $10 to $20 and are on sale now. Purchase them at or by calling the box office at 970-845-8497.

“As we explore new avenues, film is certainly a good and safe place to start and we’re thrilled to be introducing a Teton Gravity Research series this fall with gripping, adventure content that is always better enjoyed on a large screen in the company of others,” said Duncan Horner, executive director, in a press release.

To comply with social distancing regulations, the VPAC will sell a maximum of 100 tickets to each show. For more information about the venue’s COVID-19 policies, visit

The VPAC also plans to announce its full winter season soon. Here is the film series schedule.

In “Higher,” the third and final installment of Jeremy Jones’ snowboarding trilogy, watch as the 10-time Big Mountain Rider of the Year winner traces his snowboarding journey that started as a child hiking Cape Cod’s Jailhouse Hill.

Watch as Jones and his friends made up of the next generation of big mountain rippers leave tracks on signature lines in the close-to-home playgrounds by Jackson Hole and Lake Tahoe as well as far-flung descents in Alaska and Nepal.

“Far Out”

Thursday, Dec. 3 at 3 and 8 p.m. | $10

In this ski and snowboard film, follow along as an athlete makes the journey of a lifetime to the Albanian Alps, one of the world’s most remote and unexplored mountain ranges. Interspersed, watch as crews tackle the Purcell Mountains of British Columbia in search of mind-bending lines, experience urban madness in Kamchatka and the insanity of the Crazy Mountains in Montana. Join the crew in the Slovenian Alps for over-the-head cold smoke and watch in wonder as an 11-year-old rips Jackson Hole. Travel to Girdwood, Alaska to see an alien landscape and watch as Sean Jordan rides into Crested Butte on a black stallion.

“Live the dream” defines the adventures found in TGR’s films from the past 25 years. New release “Make Believe” celebrates the athletes who not only commit to this ethos, but who live and breath mountain life and who have made a conscious decision to make and believe in their dreams. Watch as 16 athletes at the top of their game tackle descents everywhere from Montana to the Japanese Alps, and the Coastal Mountains of British Columbia to Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

“S&M2: Metallica & San Francisco Symphony Film”

Monday, Dec. 28 and Tuesday, Dec. 29 at 8 p.m. | $20

In 2019, Metallica and the 80-member San Francisco Symphony teamed up for two sold-out concerts watched by 40,000 ecstatic fans hailing from nearly 70 countries. Consequence of Sound called the concert “a true celebration of Metallica and their musical prowess.” Feel like you’re in the audience for the historic concert that brought the band and the symphony together for the first time since the 1999 performances captured on the Grammy-winning S&M album.
