THE STORY (Comedy, Drama, Romance, Coming of Age)
Dave (Dennis Christopher) and his working-class friends Cyril (Daniel Stern), Moocher (Jackie Earle Haley) and Mike (Dennis Quaid) spend their post-high school days in Bloomington, Indiana, sparring with snooty students from the local university, chasing girls and--in Dave's case--dreaming of competitive bicycle racing. The four friends face opposition from all corners as they decide to make Dave's dreams come true in the university's annual bicycle endurance race.

TRANSIT - Info to come.

PARKING - Info to come.

There is no meetup fee for this event, however the organizers screening this film may ask for small donations.

We look forward to seeing you there!!
