"Arguably the best film ever made about professional cycling" - Peter Cowie, International Film Guide

In honour of the most famous and the most dramatic of the spring classic "monument" races - Paris-Roubaix, we're bringing this outstanding cycling documentary to the BIG screen for ONE SCREENING ONLY.

This film has stood the testament of time in terms of documentary making, cycling prowess and cutting edge cinematography.

The hellish Sunday took place on April 11, 1976 when the champions of cycle-racing battled for victory in the classic and gruelling annual bicycle race – Paris-Roubaix.

A Sunday in Hell is a Danish documentary film that captures not just the events of the 1976 edition but the atmosphere of a professional race.

Paris–Roubaix is the most famous and usually the most dramatic of the spring classics. Much of the latter portion is over narrow, cobbled tracks that choke with dust on dry days and become slick and muddy in rain. For the riders it's a challenge to keep going without puncturing or crashing.

"You can see every bead of sweat on the cyclists and every smashed-up ankle. It really makes you never want to get on a bike again. But it is an amazing film." - Nick Fraser, BBC commissioning editor

So listen to the voice inside you; it’s telling you to go. Grab your mates, grab your tickets AND come along for the ride.

TICKETS available on-line at as well as door sales ON THE NIGHT at the Theatre (SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY).
