FILM NIGHT: FINAL ASCENT: THE LEGEND OF HAMISH MACINNES

Hamish MacInnes attempted Everest in 1953 with his friend Johnny Cunningham, and almost stole the peak before Hillary and Tenzing. As an explorer, expedition leader and engineer he achieved world fame. As inventor of the all metal ice axe, author of the International Mountain Rescue Handbook and founder of Glencoe Mountain Rescue he has been responsible for saving hundreds of lives, if not thousands. But at the age of 84, his accomplishments could not save him from being institutionalised against his will, suffering from delirium. This film tells the story of his life by mirroring his greatest challenge: to recover his memories and rescue himself.

Certificate PG, run time 1 hour 21 minutes.

Start time 7:30pm, tickets £5 (under 18s £3) at the door
