I have two pre-paid tickets, presumedly at the box office, that I cannot use tonight. Let me know if you would like to try and use them. I'm not sure if an email will be enough for the box office but its worth a try.

First to reply gets them.

\r?\n> shown this Sunday, 6:30 p.m.

\r?\n> ( These are very rare

\r?\n> films, not ones that you can buy or rent. I'm hoping to see some BVVW

\r?\n> members there.

\r?\n> PROGRAM 14 | 6:30 pm

\r?\n> France 1965 | 16 mm 30 min.

\r?\n> With the only commentary being the jazz soundtrack, this is a true

\r?\n> poemto bicycle racing. The film shows all aspects of the 1965 Tour

\r?\n> high-wheel fixed-gear grass track of the 1880's. Also featured are the

\r?\n> track sprints from the Wembly Six-Day and Reg Harris at the Olympic

\r?\n> Games and World Championships. The highlight of the film is six

\r?\n> minutesof the Tour de France featuring the greats-Coppi, Bartali,

\r?\n> Geminiani and

\r?\n> Robic being challenged by newcomer Nolten. This is cycling cinema

\r?\n> at its

\r?\n> best!
