Could it be the last Hackney Bicycle Film society showing tonight?

I received this email off Adam recently, the organiser of the Hackney Bicycle Film Society:

We have decided that this could be our penultimate show audiences have been dwindling over the last couple of months with only eight coming to the last two shows we think the HBFS is something pretty special and unique but if people are not coming then it becomes unsustainable so if we do not get improved attendances for September and October then October will be our last show.

The film Overcoming will be shown. It is a profound and penetrating insight into the hermetically closed world of professional cycling. With former pro rider, Tour de France winner Bjarne Riis as the protagonist, the documentary follows him and his new Team CSC as they strive for the impossible: to become the world’s best and win the Tour de France.

It would be sad to see the end of the Bicycle Film Society so if you are in the area go along and show your support! Plus, the film looks very interesting. 

The Hackney Bicycle Film society meets at:

Calthorpe Arms,
252 Grays Inn Road
London WC1x 8JR and start
Prompt at 7:30

    So films should only be made about decent, upstanding folk? I take it you think Trainspotting should never have been made?!
