showtimes and tickets

Modern society has long believed that women hold up half the sky in terms of equality and progression. So when it comes to the sport of professional cycling, why aren't women receiving half the road?

Directed by pro cyclist Kathryn Bertine, HALF THE ROAD explores the world of women's professional cycling, focusing on both the love of sport and the pressing issues of inequality that modern-day female athletes face in male dominated sports. With footage from some of the world's best races to interviews with Olympians, World Champions, rookies, coaches, officials, doctors and family members, HALF THE ROAD offers a unique insight to the drive, dedication, and passion it takes for a female cyclist to thrive.

Included as well are notable women who have achieved inroads in other sports, such as Kathrine Switzer, the first woman to official register (as "K.V. Switzer") and run the all-male Boston Marathon in 1967; the iconic photo of her being attacked by a race official was listed by Time-Life as among its "100 Photographs that Changed the World."

Nobody's owed anything in the entertainment business. The people either turn out and vote with their dollars or they don't. And Sports is entertainment. The greatest juggler in the world maybe of all time who's dedicated his entire life to juggling runs a concrete business to pay the bills...
