A documentary hailed by Filmmaker Magazine as “engrossing” and “endlessly surprising,” Splinters delves into the evolution of Papua New Guinea’s indigenous surfing culture as it centers on the compelling human drama drifting in its wake. An official selection at the Tribeca Film Festival, the film offers an accessible entry point into the impoverished seaside village of Vanimo, whose natives discovered the sport after an Australian pilot left behind his surfboard and spec script for Point Break 2: Still Surfin’. Chronicling the community’s attempt to join Papua New Guinea’s national surfing team, the film transcends its wave-catching antics with a moving exploration of the town’s male-dominated culture and desire to leave the island and see the larger world.
Alpine Cinemas eight theaters make current movies come alive as massive screens merge with Dolby Digital sound to keep each crowd of 200 or more immersed in the action. The signature theater injects even more realism with roomy stadium seats and 3-D capabilities that add an extra dimension without having to bring a 20-foot friend to act out the movie. Before shows, guests can stock up on refreshments at the snack bar equipped with savory popcorn and bubbly soda.
