Here's another great opportunity to meet up, make some new friends, and see this amazing movie.  It being the holiday season, some won't be able to attend the Dec 1st Holiday meet up so I thought this might be another great opportunity.  

I definitely want to see this movie, and the price (free) is definitely doable.

Let me know below if you want to attend and we can make plans to meet up 1/2 hour before showtime.

Here's a trailer for this Sundance Film Festival, 2011 award winning show:

WOW!  The Screening will be followed by a Q+A with director Jeff Orlowski, moderated by Doug Fabrizio, host of KUER’s RadioWest.*

When National Geographic photographer James Balog asked, “How can one take a picture of climate change?” his attention was immediately drawn to ice. Soon he was asked to do a cover story on glaciers that became the most popular and well-read piece in the magazine during the last five years. But for Balog, that story marked the beginning of a much larger and longer-term project that would reach epic proportions.

In this breathtakingly beautiful documentary, filmmaker Jeff Orlowski follows the indomitable photographer as he brings to life the Extreme Ice Survey (EIS)—a massive photography project that placed 30 cameras across three continents to gather visual evidence of the Earth’s melting ice. Chasing Ice tells the story of a visionary artist who, in facing his own mortality, bequeaths the magic of photography and the adventure of the expedition to a new generation and captures the most visible sign of climate change on the planet today.

UDOT Trax goes right to the Library.  See Map here.

The website says TRAX runs until 11:30 PM.

You can call 1-888-RIDE-UTA if you need further information.

TRAX fares can be found here.

I will definitely be attending and shopping this week for an orange scarf.

* The library hours are listed as:

Phone: (801) 524-8200
Hours:   
Mon-Thu     9am–9pm**
Fri-Sat     9am–6pm
Sun     1–5pm
So I wonder if the Q+A session will run later?  And, if so, what does that means for those using the parking guarage.

Here's a phone number if you have any questions - (801) 524-8200

See you there!

I looked up parking for SLC Library and it seems to close at 9:00 PM and is not free

Parking at the Main Library

An underground parking facility can be accessed from eastbound 400 South between 200 and 300 East. Parking in this city-operated facility is free for the first half-hour, then $1.50 per half-hour after that.

Any vehicle displaying a disability special group license plate or disability windshield placard may park in the parking garage at Library Square for two hours with no charge.

Additional time beyond the two hours is $1.50 per half-hour. Starting in 2011, this parking structure offers electric vehicle charging stations near the 400 South exit ramp.

It's definitely cheaper to park and ride TRAX.  I plan on riding from Day Break.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
