    Default Bike Arlington Presents: BikeSwell The Movie - Oct. 10th - Cinema & Drafthouse

    Ok, folks, you are hearing it here first! It's the fall cycling event you've been waiting for. (After the Arlington Fun Ride, of course!)

    BikeArlington, in partnership with the Arlington Bicycle Advisory Committee, presents the "bike-umentary" of the year: BikeSwell - Smart Movement in Arlington, Virginia.

    This film features local bike advocacy rock stars and highlights the triumphs and tribulations of making Arlington a premiere bicycle friendly community. The feature presentation will be followed by a panel discussion so you can learn more from some of the people involved in Arlington's "Smart Movement":

    •Chris Eatough (Panel Moderator) - BikeArlington Program Manager
    •Jason Berry - Director, Gripped Films
    •Mark Blacknell - President of the Board, Washington Area Bicyclist Association
    •Gillian Burgess - Founder, KidicalMass Arlington
    •Edgar Gil Rico - League Certified Instructor, Hispanic Marketing Specialist
    •Jakob Wolf-Barnett - Chair, Arlington Bicycle Advisory Committee

    Thursday, October 10, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
    Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse
    2903 Columbia Pike
    Arlington, VA 22204

    Tickets are free but we strongly suggest donating at least $5 to the non-profit organization, Phoenix Bikes. Phoenix Bikes rebuilds and refurbishes old bikes, and supports youth by providing a safe and educational environment for them to volunteer and learn.

    Doors open 7:00pm.
    Movie starts 7:30pm.
    Panel discussion/Q&As begins at 8pm.
    Doors close 9pm.

    There will be prizes raffled off after the film, donated by BikeArlington, the League of American Bicyclists, WABA and New Belgium Brewery.

    But wait, there's more!

    Phoenix Bikes has generously donated a bike that will be raffled off as the Grand Prize. Every attendee will receive one raffle ticket. Additional tickets are available for purchase ($2) with all proceeds going to Phoenix Bikes.

    What are you waiting for? Get your tickets here!

    And, I hope when folks are getting their tickets they are either donating to Phoenix Bikes or saving up so you can give at the door (and buy a bunch of raffle tix at the event!)

    Ticket purchased, cash will be donated at the door... I really thought this was a movie about me.... BikeSewell, but obviously I read that wrong! Regardless, can't wait to see the movie and all your smiling faces!

    Only about 50 tickets left for this, with more than a week to go. It'll probably sell out, so if you are interested in going you should snag your ticket ASAP.

    Is there a way for people, who no longer can make it the screening, to post here to give away their tickets?

    It occurred to me that this would be a great even to bring my nieces to, ya know now that it's sold out and all...

    Either way, I will be there with or without my nieces but I wouldn't want those precious seats go to waste.

    Wanted to let everyone know that there WILL be extra bike parking the night of the event thanks to Phoenix Bikes! There will be volunteers at the front door to direct you where the extra racks are located...

    For those of you without tickets, show up and we might be able to let you in about 10 minutes before the start of the movie. While there is a possibility of no-shows, we can't guarantee you'll be let in.

    If you have reserved tickets and you now know that you aren't coming, feel free to broker with your ticketless friends to swap ahead of time so they can take your place...

    Am I the only person who biked to the Drafthouse tonight? Felt pretty bad *** riding CaBi in the cool rain on the way to the theater. Until I nearly took a spill over a one-foot drop in the temporary sidewalk along Columbia Pike! The asphalt path actually drops down about a foot near the Washington Blvd. bridge.

    Anyway, great movie and discussion! Looking forward to the sequel too.
