Everest

[Pan to Sookie and Lorelai climbing stairs]
SOOKIE: Did you ever see Everest?
LORELAI: No.
SOOKIE: It’s a good movie.

Everest is a 1998 45-minute IMAX documentary film about the difficulties involved with climbing Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world. Narrated by Irish actor Liam Neeson, it focuses on the 1996 Mount Everest disaster, in which a group of climbers became trapped by a blizzard near the summit. Everest received good reviews, and made $128 million during its theatrical run – the highest gross of any documentary to this date.

This is the closest that Sookie gets to making a complaint about having to buy cheap seats, as she likens their climb to their seats to struggling up Mount Everest.
