Classical 91.5 presents: Breaking Away

Sat, 04/07/2018 - 3:00pm - 5:00pm

Classical 91.5 Presents, a series that spotlights classical music connections in film, presents this 1979 American coming of age comedy-drama film.

Join WXXI at the Little Theatre on Saturday, April 7 at 3 p.m. for a special screening of Breaking Away. 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 face opposition from all corners as they decide to make Dave's dreams come true in the university's annual bicycle endurance race. Enjoy this inspirational movie with great classical music in the sound track.

Ride your bike to the theatre and show your helmet - and we'll take a $1 off any popcorn purchase.

Come early to hear movie-themed music in the Little Café at 2 p.m. and stay after the film for a lively panel discussion.
