35MM Screening

Sign-up to receive updates about this and other events and films.

Additional details are coming soon! Tickets coming soon!


Come on out to the Colonial for a fantastic trip back to the Eighties for two films that rarely get screened, let alone screened together. RAD (1986) and Gleaming the Cube (1989) stand on very high ground in both sub-genres of BMX and Skateboarding movies.


Gleaming the Cube (25th-Anniversary)

(Graeme Clifford, United States,  1989, 1h 45min, PG-13, 35mm)
Brian’s (Christian Slater) adopted brother is killed when he discovers that the shop he works in sends weapons to Vietnam instead of medications. To the police it looks like suicide, but Brian knows better so he skates off to investigate the murder himself.


(Hal Needham, United States,  1986, 1h 31min, PG, DCP)
A bicycle-motocrosser (Bill Allen) tries to enter a corrupt promoter’s nationally televised cash-prize race.
