Showtimes & Tickets

Screened January 31, 2018

Daredevil motorcyclist Evel Knievel had gained a nationwide following, especially among kids, so why not vroom onto the big screen? Notwithstanding the poster touting “his first dramatic movie role,” Knievel is in his own image (two-fisted, unafraid of danger, friend to orphans, et al.) for an action-packed adventure that pits him against a drug-smuggling ring headed by Leslie Nielsen and including frenemy Marjoe Gortner; remember, this too was America in the 1970s!

Please note: the print we will be screening is faded.

A film by Gordon Douglas
