Movie at Cal Anderson Park on Sunday

Northwest Film Forum will be showing a movie outdoors at Cal Anderson Park on Sunday July 20th as part of the Imagine Capitol Hill sustainability festival. It took some sleuthing to find the name of the film and surprise! It is a bike movie. Or maybe not such a surprise: the movie is part of Seattle Bike-In, an annual event in it's third year of promoting alternative transportation in the city.

Showing at dusk is A Sunday in Hell, a 1976 Danish flick about a brutal bike race: the French Paris-Roubaix spring classic, notorious for the hellish paves or cobbled roads of the north "which are no longer used for civilised traffic but only for transporting cattle - and for cycle races." IMDB commenters indicate the movie is not subtitled so unless you understand "En Forårsdag i Helvede," the sound volume won't matter much.

A Sunday in Hell is preceded by a musical lineup including Steve Arntson, who plays concertina, Medieval Woman, and SEAHORSE.
