ROCKLAND — Warren Miller Entertainment brings its audience back into theaters for its 72nd feature film, “Winter Starts Now,” screening at the Strand Theatre, 345 Main St., Friday, Dec. 10, at 7:30 p.m.

Viewers will venture to Alaska’s Prince William Sound, where the only “first tracks” you’ll encounter belong to bears; on a road trip to the Rocky Mountains; and to Maine’s community of craftsmen and women devoted to sliding on snow. Along the way, viewers will be joined by old friends Marcus Caston, Amie Engerbretson and Jim Ryan. Go speed riding with JT Holmes and hit the moguls with Jonny Moseley. There will be kids with huge Olympic dreams, and adaptive shredders who leave even the most able athletes in the dust as they complete the first ever disabled ski descent of Denali. The film is an homage to every skier who lives for the thrill of winter and finds solace on the chairlift. Warren Miller Entertainment has been a pioneer in action sports cinematography since 1949.
