Film festival caters to biking community

REEL Bike-in Theater kicks off with a showing of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” on August 2 at 6 p.m.

The people who brought you the Wicked ‘Wich food truck and The Greens “Artists-In-Residence” are organizing a free bike-in theater and film festival at The Greens Hotel on Del Paso Blvd.

, August through October. (Get it? Bike-in instead of drive-in?)

REEL Bike-in Theater is an outdoor film series showcasing award-winning documentaries, acclaimed independent films and classic Hollywood hits like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Best in Show.

Festival organizers are hoping the film series will attract the region’s strong biking community to the event. Sacramento cyclists are notoriously supportive of local businesses and are attracted to bike-friendly events.

In addition to movies, attendees can grab a snack from Sacramento’s popular mobile food trucks, sip a drink from the beer garden and take a gander at the pop-up shops.

Free movie screenings occur on 1st and 3rd Thursdays throughout August, September and October.

REEL Bike-in Theater is for those 21 and older–no kids. Dogs of all ages are welcome.
