BMX 80's Classic Rad Coming Back To Theaters October 14th

Rad is one of those 80's classics that most might not remember but is an experience that fans of the film will never forget. Released in 1986, the film is celebrating its 35th Anniversary this year. To help with the celebration Fathom Events is bringing the greatest film about BMX bikes ever made into theaters for one night only. Screenings of the film will also include the trailer for featurette "A Rad Documentary – Inside the BMX Movie That Changed Everything," which features interviews with the cast and crew. If you don't know what this is, I feel sorry for you, and you should watch the trailer below.
