"WHY WE RIDE" Movie

I got this information from Matt at the ARMCA website and thought it would be worth getting the word out hear also. Southdale AMC 16 in Edina is having a Presale for the movie "Why We Ride." The showing is Monday Dec. 2nd. It looks as if they still need to sell 22 tickets to show the movie.
It's getting cold and dark, so why not be there. I ready to go but who else is going to be there.

Thanks for the link. I want to see this movie but the closest showing to me is about 45 miles away in a shit city area. I might go anyway. I'm old enough to have seen On Any Sunday on the big screen when I was about 13 yrs old. I was pumped when I walked out of that theater. Between that and growing up in a motorcycle family, I've been riding on and off road basically all my life. I hope this movie does well and reaches many people. Riders and non riders alike will benefit. One of the greatest accomplishments of On Any Sunday was to help dispell the stereotype created by hollyweird in the 60's that all "bikers" were a bunch of drunken outlaws. Sadly, alot of the riders that the public has contact with today are either 'stuntahs' out on the freeways or the nuckle draggin, patch wearing 1% wannabes. This hurts us in many ways. This movie could go along way to introduce John E. Public to the rest of us. Spread the word and encourage the non-riding people you know to go see it. Cheers ya buncha FFs. Ride long, fast, hard, and safe.

Thanks for sharing your experience with On Any Sunday even though you live in Michigan. I wasn't old enough to see it in Theatres, but I was old enough to experience it on Netflix. I first got the bug when I was about 9 years old. My dad and I were walking down University Ave in Saint Paul and the Hitching Post had a Yellow Suzuki in the window, maybe a RM60. My dad pulled my arm to keep walking, pulling me away as my eyes lusted after that yellow bike. It was a very brief. I'll never forget it.

"Why We Ride" in Madison WI

This message below was emailed (from a local guy) to the Madison Motorcycle Club recently. I saw a thread on ADV Central about it scheduling to show in MN (sold out I think), but not yet for Madison. Looks like January 9th at the AMC theater in Fitchburg.
BUT they need to hit a minimum threshold of ticket reservations to commit to showing it. I went ahead and reserved a couple. Here's the info:


Hello, I thought the club might be interested in this. Not certain if you are familiar with the recent documentary Why We Ride, but I have arranged with AMC and the film organizer a one time showing on January 9th at 7:30. The showing is contingent on the motorcycle community as it will only go through with a minimum number of reserved tickets.

Event info and ticket info:

Film site:

Here is the Facebook event with more info:

Please pass the info on to anyone you think would be interested.

Chris

It will probably sell out. Just a hunch.

That's what I'm thinking. The showing over in your neck of the woods sold out, right?

Bump to make sure the threshold is met (although it sure looks like that won't be a problem).

"Why we ride" film in Milwaukee

Maybe a repost - but there is a screening for this film scheduled in Wauwatosa at the Mayfair AMC theater Monday Jan 13 at 7:30pm. As of now they need to sell 45 more tickets to justify the screening. So Get Some!
