Big Bike Film Night: A SUNDAY IN HELL

April 11, 2019 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm

$16 – $39

“Arguably the best film ever made about professional cycling” – Peter Cowie, International Film Guide

In honour of Paris-Roubaix, the most famous and the most dramatic of the spring classic “monument” races, we’re bringing this outstanding cycling documentary to the BIG screen for ONE NZ SCREENING ONLY, as part of our Feature Series.

Academy Cinemas, Lorne St, Auckland – Thursday 11 April, 8.30pm

Tickets $22 Adult/ $16 for under 16s

OLD AND GOLD!!! This film has stood the test of time in terms of documentary making, cycling prowess and cutting edge cinematography.

The hellish Sunday took place on April 11, 1976 when the champions of cycle-racing battled for victory in the classic and gruelling annual bicycle race – Paris-Roubaix.  A Sunday in Hell is a Danish documentary that captures not just the events of the 1976 edition, but the atmosphere of a professional race.

“You can see every bead of sweat on the cyclists and every smashed-up ankle. It really makes you never want to get on a bike again. But it is an amazing film.” – Nick Fraser, BBC commissioning editor.

At this special screening, we will have Karl Woolcott from Ride Holidays talking about their 2020 Cycling Tour to the Spring Classics; several magazines up for grabs from NZ Cycling Journal; and Jonathan Dodd will draw a Gift Voucher for a Soigneur Merino Wool Retro Cycling Jersey.

Also, there will be valet bike parking on the night courtesy of our good friends at Auckland Transport Cycling.

So listen to the voice inside you; it’s telling you to go. Grab your mates, grab your tickets AND come along for the ride.

TICKETS AVAILABLE NOW online at www.bigbikefilmnight.nz – and door sales on the night, subject to availability.
