Entertainment One Films has invited 18 COC members to go see the advance screening of "A Walk in the Woods".

UPDATE! We were able to get 18 more movie tickets for COC members to enjoy.

Guess What! I just received 8 more movie tickets for our members but this will be the last batch...I was told. We will move another 8 members to the list soon. This will make 44 of us. I was also told that we need to be there early - between 6:00 to 6:15 pm.

The film tells an amazing story that shows people are capable of challenging their limits no matter their age. A Walk in the Woods, starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte is a title that we believe will truly resonate with The Calgary Outdoor Club.

IMDB rating is 7.0. The movie will be released on September 2nd.

Please find a synopsis and trailer below to give you a better picture of what the film is all about.

Meet me inside West Hills movie theatre next to the ticket counter between 6:00 and 6:55 pm. I will have the tickets.

"In this new comedy adventure, celebrated travel writer, Bill Bryson (Academy Award winner Robert Redford), instead of retiring to enjoy his loving and beautiful wife (Academy Award winner Emma Thompson), and large and happy family, challenges himself to hike the Appalachian Trail - 2,200 miles of America's most unspoiled, spectacular and rugged countryside from Georgia to Maine. The peace and tranquility he hopes to find, though, is anything but, once he agrees to being accompanied by the only person he can find willing to join him on the trek - his long lost and former friend Katz (Academy Award nominee Nick Nolte), a down-on-his-luck serial philanderer who, after a lifetime of relying on his charm and wits to keep one step ahead of the law – sees the trip as a way to sneak out of paying some debts and sneak into one last adventure before its too late. The trouble is, the two have a completely different definition of the word, "adventure". Now they're about to find out that when you push yourself to the edge, the real fun begins."
