About this Event
Come out to the Miracle Theatre on Capitol Hill on Saturday afternoon, September 24th, and help support Food & Friends and Whitman Walker Health by seeing Chasing Legends, a high-octane documentary film that takes an inside look at one of the world's most exciting annual sporting events, the Tour de France!
Food & Friends is the only community-based organization in the D.C. region providing home-delivered medically tailored meals and medical nutrition therapy to those living with cancer, HIV/AIDS, and other serious illnesses.
Whitman-Walker Health is a non-profit community health organization with multiple locations throughout D.C. Its mission is to offer affirming health and wellness services to all, with a special expertise in LGBTQ and HIV care.
Chasing Legends (rated PG) covers the events of the 2009 Tour de France from the perspective of Team Columbia–HTC. Among the cyclists featured are Mark, the "Manx Missile" Cavendish, 16-time Tour de France racer, American George Hincapie, 12-time Tour de France stage winner, German Erik Zabel, and former cycling legend Eddy Merckx, whom many consider to be the greatest all-around cyclist of all time.
Scott Sanger, the organizer of this film screening event, is definitely not a former cycling legend. He is, however, an avid cyclist who for over 25 years has used his bicycle as a tool to help raise funds for the organizations and causes he believes in. On October 8th in Salisbury, Maryland, Scott will be biking 100 miles in support of Food & Friends and Whitman-Walker Health.
Jason Berry, the incredibly gifted writer, director, and cinematographer of Chasing Legends, who has kindly agreed to drive over 140 miles from his home in Harrisonburg, Virginia to Washington, D.C. on September 24th to support this special event and personally welcome everyone to his movie!
The Miracle Theatre is located on Capitol Hill at 535 8th Street SE, just two blocks from the Eastern Market Metro station on the Blue, Orange, and Silver Lines. Paid parking is available in the public parking lot underneath the Southeast Freeway on 8th Street SE between I Street and Virginia Ave., just two blocks from the movie theatre.
Doors open at the Miracle Theatre on September 24 for general admission seating at 4:00pm. The movie will start at 4:30pm and end at 6:00pm.
