Hey Everyone –

As many of you know our friend and skier from 3 of our past films, Max Mancini, was involved in a tragic car accident a few weeks back (follow this link for details: And, as many of you may also know, we’ve decided to organize a special benefit screening of Playground to raise money to support him during his recovery. I know that information about this screening has been limited at best, so I wanted to pass along as much of that info to you as possible.

What: Benefit Screening of Warren Miller’s Playground to support Max Mancini

Where: Boulder Theater

When: Tuesday, November 6th, 8 PM


Tickets: $30. Available at all Boulder Theater outlets (box office,, (303) 786-7030), Boulder Ski Deals.

Group tickets:! $29. No shipping charges apply. Minimum 10 tickets. Every group order will receive a DVD and 2 pieces of WM swag (ice scraper, poster, koozie, water bottle). (800) 523-7117

Employee Group Tickets: Every group order placed by an employee will receive a WM hat, shirt, beanie, and DVD. Same price and minimum quantity.

Other incentives: Just like all other WM shows in Boulder/Denver, every attendee will receive lift tickets to Copper, Winter Park & Steamboat and a discount to Boulder Ski Deals. In addition, attendees will also receive discount coupons for, Crocs and more. We’ll also have athletes there signing autographs and the Go Fast jet pack guy will be there sometime that day/evening.

Prizes & raffle: We’ll have a few door prizes to give away but most of the prizes are going to be raffled off. These prizes include autographed Jonny Moseley skis, trips to Steamboat and Winter Park, luxury suite tickets to Avalanche and Nug! gets games, a WM DVD library, and much more.

Proceeds! : All pr oceeds from the raffle and a percentage from the ticket sales will go to support Max. Corona is also going to donate a TBD amount for every bottle of Corona sold that night.

Donation Fund: We’re in the process of setting up a donation fund for Max whereby anyone can donate online or by sending checks. Details to follow when this is finally setup. It’s a long story but apparently the Patriot Act is responsible for the major obstacle in this being finalized. No comment.

Max is a great guy and what happened to him and Molly is tragic. Any support you guys can offer is truly appreciated. If you know of anyone who might be interested in this event, please pass along this info. If there are any questions please drop me a line or stop on by the tour dept.

Many thanks,

PS – Some members of Molly’s family are flying in for this and I know it’s going to be one of the few bright spots for them during these difficult times. I truly a! ppreciate any kind of support you can offer for them and the Mancini family

I have never personally met Max but everything that I have heard is that he is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. It's very commendable that you guys are doing this for him in such a dark time. Sorry for your misfortune Max.

I saw playground last night at Ft. Collins. I was a great movie, but Miller did not narrate as much as I would have enjoyed.
