Brittown Movie Premiere

Brittown premiere at The RoxieIf you like old British bikes, you might want to check out Brittown from Scott Di Lalla and Zack Coffman, the same fellows that brought you Choppertown: The Sinners. The Brittown DVD is coming out next week and they're going to have a premiere showing in San francisco at the Roxie Cinema, located in the heart of San Francisco's Mission District, at 3117 16th Street between Valencia and Guerrero. Showtime is 6:30, 8:30 and 10:30. Free parking for motorcycles in front of the theater. Tickets are available online or at the door.

I know we have a lot of readers from the San Francisco area, so if anyone goes, send us a review. Sounds like a good time and a pretty neat documentary.

    I’ll try to make it to the showing and let you know how it was.

    As far as the BSA show, my BSA B50 isn’t quite finished

    How do you like home movies? How do you like home movies when you don’t know the people in the movie? How do you like home movies of people you don’t know with a bunch of custom Brit bikes and a beauty pagent?

    Brittown did come across as a home movie but the sound track was great, the editing so-so, and the content verging on narcissistic. I was hoping for more on the culture of the bike scene, more history, more of something that would justify the $40 night – two tickets, two lamb kabobs and a ginger beer at Truly Mediterranean.

    I learned that Meatball, as he’s known, has a lot of time on his hands to do what he wants. His time also affords expensive aftermarket parts, 30 British bikes and a Dodge Sprinter, a punk band, and a fridge full of beer for all his leaching buddies. Good for him.

    I think my wife enjoyed the show, at least the fact that I took her for a evening bike ride to a movie and kabobs. At least our hero Meatball made me look good; I have the same sort of bikes without farming out expensive work and pricy aftermarket parts but somehow manage to spend time with my family. My friends are also more considerate of what they say and do in front of my wife and daughter. Maybe it’s because I don’t keep the fridge stocked or have groupies following me around with a video camera.

    It’s a worth see if you have an evening of nothing to do and want to park in a line of bikes in front of a theater. Or you can go to a bar and get more for your money.
