Lions Club presents ‘Line of Descent’

Organization to screen ski/snowboard movie

NASHUA – The Nashua Lions Club presents Warren Miller’s “Line of Descent.” This will be the sixth year in a row the club is screening one of his films, with funds raised going to the Lion’s Club for distribution to various charities.

“Each year Warren Miller comes out with a new ski/snowboard extreme movie,” said Cort Mendez, event coordinator and Lions Club member. “Generally they like to show them just as ski season is about to start to get people excited about the season.”

He said Miller’s movies feature stunts executed at resorts worldwide, highlighting popular extreme skiers and snowboarders.

The film will be shown at Chunky’s Cinema & Pub in Nashua at two

showing times, 6:30 and 7 p.m. on Nov. 30. However, it’s recommended that people arrive 30 to 45 minutes in advance to allow time for check in and ordering food.

“Chunky’s is good enough to let us show the movie there for a nominal fee and the proceeds from tickets, minus a fee to the theater, goes back to the Lions Club,” Mendez said. “We also generate money through the silent auction that goes to the Lions Club.”

He said there are great things offered in this year’s silent auction including suites to a Fisher Cat game, and Monster Energy donated a very unique snowboard to the auction.

Aside from the auction, all attendees will receive goody bags that come with various lift ticket coupons, local vendor discounts and chances to win one of three different all-expense paid ski excursions.

“A big reason people like to come to our Warren Miller movie is the fact we put together these goody bags,” Mendez said. “They’re worth well over $300.”

That comes with the purchase of a $25 movie ticket for the event which can be bought online at eventbrite.com. In recent years, the first show time sold out.

“I encourage people to buy them online,” Mendez said. “There’s a high likelihood they will sell out, but if they don’t we’ll sell some tickets at the door for any left over seats.”

He said with the goody bags being worth a lot of money people really seem to want to come back each year.
