MOVIE NIGHT @ McMENAMINS
SHAUN PALMER: THE MISERABLE CHAMPION
Old. St Francis School Theater
9:00 p.m. | $5 per person, cash only | 21 & over
This December, Hutch’s Bicycles and Pine Mountain Sports invite you to take a break from the Holiday rush and relive some of the best days of 90′s action sports decadence with Shaun Palmer: The Miserable Champion. This flick won Best Biography at the 2012 X-Dance Action Sports Film Festival.
In 1998 a cover story for USA TODAY posed the question: “Is this man the world’s greatest athlete?” That man was mountain bike-snowboard-motocross-punk rocker Shaun Palmer, and that story shocked (and even offended) the sports world.
Fast-forward to 2012 and the idea that a bad-boy action sports athlete could be the best in the world isn’t shocking, it seems normal. Brad Holmes’ film, Shaun Palmer: The Miserable Champion, covers a career of extreme highs and lows as Palmer either dominates or fails in sports ranging from downhill mountain biking to snowboarding and skiing at the Winter X Games.
Movie Night at McMenamins raises funds and awareness for Central Oregon Trail Alliance. Door prizes will be provided by Hutch’s Bicycles so brush up on your Shaun Palmer trivia!
Thanks for helping us spread the word...
