THE BICYCLE THIEF a.k.a. Ladri di biciclette (Bike-centric Cinema)
About THE BICYCLE THIEF:
Ricci, an unemployed man in the depressed post-WWII economy of Italy, gets at last a good job - for which he needs a bike - hanging up posters. But soon his bicycle is stolen. He and his son walk the streets of Rome, looking for the bicycle. Ricci finally manages to locate the thief but with no proof, he has to abandon his cause. But he and his son know perfectly well that without a bike, Ricci won't be able to keep his job. Directed by Vittorio De Sica.

This film is presented in honor of National Bike Month. Ride your bike to the showing, bring in your biking helmet, and get $1.00 off your admission. Also at this special showing we will be partnering with local bike shops who will be contributing anything from tune-ups, bike safety gear, special giveaways, and, of course, U locks.
