Cycling theme idea for Keighley cinema
12:00pm Saturday 24th August 2013 in News
Keighley Picture House could screen cycling-related movies in the run-up to the Tour de France coming through Keighley.
A group working on Keighley’s involvement in the race has begun discussions with the North Street cinema about a special film season.
Cycling enthusiast Frank O’Dwyer, the group’s chairman, suggests films such as Breaking Away, regarded as one of the best-ever sports movies.
Mr O’Dwyer has also approached army cadet bosses about selling souvenir programmes on race day.
Mr O’Dwyer said the group was hoping to organise activities in locations such as the Town Hall Square for crowds waiting for the Tour de France. And the group hopes to hire big screens to show the progress of the race before and after it comes to the town centre.
To join the group, call Mr O’Dwyer on (01535) 600905.
