The Rise of Enduro

When Warren Miller first began screening his extreme ski films, he was introducing an entirely new concept to a wider population, magnifying the antics of a few men and projecting them as inspiration to thousands of others. The Rise of Enduro isn't quite that groundbreaking, but the film is positioned somewhat similarly, translating a fairly well known action sport (mountain biking), but as it is done with a more burly twist.

A close cousin to mountain biking, enduro riders emphasis that they are less about the cardio of cross-country terrain and more about the technical aspects of climbing and descending; the chutes and ladders, as it were. With footage from around Marin County (California), this film captures the nascent sport as it begins to define itself as a sub-genre. The film has been traveling around the country, with stops in the usual adventure sport towns and its screening here coincides with the first leg of the four-part Oregon Enduro Series. Like the enduro races, the film promoters are promising a fun, carnival experience for the evening, with Hutch's hosting bike tire changing competition and proceeds benefiting the Central Oregon Trail Alliance. After party at Atlas Cider.

7:30 pm. Friday, June 5. Tower Theater, 835 NW Wall St. $10 adv, $14 door.

One Night One Drop

The cast of Cirque du Soleil are, of course, world renowned acrobats and showmen and women. This dance, with trampolines skyrocketing performers dangerously high and others twirling like pinwheels, is intended to raise awareness about water issues—a topic hitting way too close to home right now. Sort of like porn, some of the thrill is lost in not seeing the performance live, but then again, the cameras can capture some of the magnificence that the eye wouldn't otherwise catch from $150 seats in Vegas.

June 10, Regal Cinema.
