A Sunday in Hell at Zinema on Tuesday 4/6

On Tuesday, April 6 (the week between the cobbled classics Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix) the Zinema has been kind enough to show the film A Sunday in Hell.

This film is a legendary documentary about the 1976 Paris Roubaix and features the efforts of cycling legends Eddy Merckx, Roger de Vlaeminck and Francesco Moser. This film is widely considered to be the best cycling film of all time and is a must see for anyone into cycling. The beauty and drama of cycling in this film is unparalleled. A must see I tell you!

Here’s the details:

A Sunday in Hell
4/6/10 – 7:15 pm
Zinema 2
Ticket price: $7.50 for adults and $6.50 for students and seniors

The Zinema has been kind enough to allow this to be a fundraiser for local cycling club COGGS. We are responsible for maintaining trails in Lester Park, Hartley, Piedmont, Brewer Park, Spirit Mountain, Mont du Lac and Pokegama in Superior. We are also actively pursuing more trail development in the Twin Ports. So showing up for the movie is like putting $4 back into our trails. Please come, bring your friends and lets have fun as a cycling community enjoying some great cycling culture.

One note, tickets so on sale the day of and can’t be purchased before, so it’s recommended you come early, nab a ticket and then socialize at Zeitgeist before the movie.

Here’s some links to get inspired:

That's cool, I've cycled on the COGGS Piedmont track and really appreciate your efforts!

This movie is really awesome.  Even from a cinematic perspective.  A non cyclist would still get a kick out of it if they are into old 16mm films.  Also, I would say if you are a fan of the film "The Triplets of Belleville" you would love it as well, there is no doubt that this movie influenced that animator.
