ADVENTURE -- The World Tour from the Banff Mountain Film Festival will make its stop in Spokane with three nights of different adventure films showing at the Bing Crosby Theater on Nov. 17-19.

The tour is sponsored in Spokane by Mountain Gear where advance tickets are being sold at the retail store, 2002 N. Division, or online at

It's not too early to grab a ticket, since the show usually sells out well in advance, especially for  Friday and Saturday nights.

This year’s screenings feature the world’s best mountain sport, culture and environmental films, letting viewers experience the thrill and challenges of the mountain environments.

The Banff Mountain Film Festival is the most prestigious mountain festival in the world. Right after the festival, held every fall in Banff, Alberta, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour starts to travel the globe with stops in about 450 communities and 40 countries.

Spokane is among the first stops. The lineup of films, many of which are award winners at the Festival in Banff, Alberta, often isn't established until the first day of the Spokane screening.

Show times Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m., doors at 6,  Sunday at 6 p.m., doors open at 5.

Tickets $20 a night or $54 for a three-day pass.
