    Thursday Jan 16th, 8pm at McMenamins Old St. Francis School in Bend

    COTA Movie Night @ McMenamins kicks off 2020 with Brett Reeder in One At A Time.

    Brett Rheeder is an athlete who’s hard to read. Straying from the limelight to stay committed to his riding, Rheeder rarely lets the outside world into the inner workings of his brain. But his latest film One at a Time shows the world champion athlete in a new light. After starting off the 2018 slopestyle season with a strong performance, Brett struggles to find his rhythm before the next few events.
