Limitless - check out this adrenaline-fuelled movie at Lunafliks at Lost Lake. Uninspired and depressed, Eddie Morra can't get any words out for his manuscript. His writer's block isn't helped by the fact that his girlfriend agrees that he's a loser. What's an aspiring writer to do? Thanks to a hot-off-the-press pharmaceutical called NZT. Eddie becomes the ultimate version of himself. Between the gates and the film there's a sunset barbeque hosted by the Rotary Club of Whistler Millennium and a popcorn station, as well as lakeside DJ Andy Bowes and two PechaKucha presentations - one on rammed earth by Bob Deeks and puppets to Palestine by Sara Jennings. Guests can bring their own blanket or chair, or purchase one at the event. It cools down at sunset so warm layers are recommended. Lunafliks will be cancelled in poor weather. www.lunafliks.com
