Last Flight Home – Nov. 10th

On Thursday, November 10th, at 7pm at the Emerson Center, the Bozeman Doc Series continues with the Montana premiere of the critically acclaimed new documentary Last Flight Home.

Behind a white picket fence, on an unremarkable suburban street, we discover Eli Timoner, who founded Air Florida, the fastest growing airline in the world in the 1970’s. During his final days, we discover his extraordinary life filled with incredible success and devastating setbacks, and most importantly, an innate goodness which won him the enduring love and support of his family. Through stunning verité footage recorded by his middle child, award-winning filmmaker Ondi Timoner, Last Flight Home takes audiences on a heart-wrenching ride through one man’s exceptional life, and shares a stunning account of a courageous family confronting life and death.

A New York Times Critic’s Pick, Last Flight Home world premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival to widespread critical acclaim.

“Profound in its simplicity, wrenching in its honesty, and beautiful in its humanity. The kind of movie you’ll never forget.” The Wrap

“Ultimately, and perhaps most beautifully, the film makes a case, about how, in the end, we must measure our life in love.” Los Angeles Times 

“Intimate…compelling…It is a tribute, a grappling with mortality, an exercise in self-surveillance, a messy home movie, a brief account of aviation history and a lesson in letting go and grief…a movie with no shortage of insights into family, ritual and departures.” Variety

Doors open at 6:30pm. Tickets are available at the door or before the show online at, where you can also buy Season Passes and 7-film punch cards, learn more about the series, and view trailers for upcoming films.
