Cycle EXIF is proud to present a special night for Sydney-based lovers of cycling culture. This Wednesday night, the 15th of October 2014, we’ll host two special velo films and a reading by one of my favourite authors of one of my favourite books: Ianto Ware will recite excerpts from his 21 Nights in July: A Personal History of the Tour de France.
The Golden Age Cinema and Bar is a cinematic experience in itself: the restored art deco Paramount Pictures building in Surry Hills is a vision of vintage Hollywood elegance. This Wednesday, we’ll take over the cinema, in conjunction with I Love Sydney Bike Lanes & Cycleways, and screen an old favourite, The Bicycle Thief, and a new one — Pantani: The Accidental Death of a Cyclist.
The Bicycle Thief starts at 6.00pm and Pantani: The Accidental Death of a Cyclist will screen at 8.30pm. In-between, at 8.00pm, Ianto Ware will present some parts from one of the best books on the Tour de France I have ever read, his 21 Nights in July. It’s a must-read for any Tour fan, and it will be an incredible honour to hear it read by Ianto.
Don’t delay, book your tickets now through the Golden Age Cinema website. You can buy tickets to each film separately, and each includes entry to the reading by Ianto Ware. Space is limited, so hurry to secure a seat at what will be a brilliant night of bicycle culture.
Golden Age Cinema Bike Nite is part of the 2014 Sydney Rides Festival.
