Cycling & skiing hit big screen in films by Levi Leipheimer, Warren Miller
We have 2 pairs of tickets to the screening of "The Levi Effect." Email email@example.com if you'd like to see the film for free!
This is a shifty time of year in Colorado; it's still plenty warm for biking and hiking, but talk increasingly leans toward snow sports.
You can get your fill of both - on the big screen - in coming weeks. But you've got to get your tickets soon. We've got Warren Miller's "Flow State" coming to the Pikes Peak Center on Nov. 2 and 3. And new on the scene is a theater showing of "The Levi Effect," a film about top cyclist Levi Leipheimer, winner of the 2011 USA Pro Challenge here in Colorado.
The Leipheimer movie is one of those one-time Fathom Events presentations, this time in connection with Bike Monkey and Citizen Pictures. Screening is Oct. 23 at 7:30 p.m. and you can watch in Colorado Springs at Tinseltown, Cinemark Carefree Circle or Hollywood Theaters. Tickets cost $12.50 ($10.50 kids and $11.50 students and seniors).
"The Levi Effect" is described as "the true story of Levi Leipheimer, who having struggled to claim his rank among cycling’s elite, now finds himself in a place that he’d never considered: that his greatest legacy may not be his athletic success, but rather how he’s captured the hearts and impacted the lives of people around the world."
The event includes an introduction from Leipheimer and a panel discussion about the state of professional cycling that will include cyclist Tommy Danielson, actor Patrick Dempsey and filmmaker Frank Matson.
Warren Miller Entertainment's latest offering, "Flow State," "...guides viewers to the top of the world’s most striking peaks, taking you on an exhilarating journey across the globe to Norway, Austria, California, Switzerland and beyond. The powder in Japan will send you scrambling to tune-up your gear, the gravity in Telluride will have you scheduling an avalanche refresher course, and the steeps in Alaska will drive you to push a little harder during your next preseason workout. Winter is right around the corner, and it is time to enter the Flow State…where the mountain meets the mind."
"Flow State" shows at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 2 and 3 (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) and tickets cost $18-$21 (plus surcharges). Tickets are available at all TicketsWest outlets, the Pikes Peak Center box office, by calling 520-SHOW or by visiting www.pikespeakcenter.com. Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more by calling 800-523-7117.
The film features Jonny Moseley (host), Colby West, Chris Davenport, Jess McMillan, David Wise, Ted Ligety, Julian Carr, Jackie Paaso and Chris Anthony (rocking 10th Mountain Division gear).
