The Showroom is one of the largest independent cinemas in Europe with four luxury auditoria and a bar, it is located in the centre of Sheffield, a stones throw from the train station. The screening will be on largest screen with capacity for 282 people. It has hosted previous MTB films and events, including Follow Me, Seasons and ShAFF.
Dates have been announced for the UK cinema tour of “Lifecycles”, probably the most anticipated mountain bike film ever. The creative work of ace mountain bike photographer, Derek Frankowski, whose work regularly graces the pages of “Bike” magazine and celebrated film maker, Ryan Gibb, “Lifecycles” has been over three years in the making. Shot entirely in HD and envisaged from the very start of the project as being made to be shown on the big screen in high definition and 5.1 surround sound, “Lifecycles” follows the life of the bicycle from its creation through to its ultimate demise. The film features the cream of the crop of riding talent and couples it with some truly breathtaking locations. At a sneak industry preview of a rough cut of the film in Whistler in August, the film received a standing ovation and glowing praise with one industry insider likening it to National Geographic meets The Collective. To see what all the fuss is about, log onto www.lifecyclesfilm.com to see the extended trailer.
The UK tour coincides with the release of the film on DVD. Copies of the film can be pre-ordered from www.lifecyclesfilm.com and will be distributed in Europe by www.x-tremevideo.com who have generously lent their support to the tour.
For everyone who catches the tour in the cinema, they will enjoy not just “Lifecycles” but also the latest feature from Ionate Films called “VAST”. Shot entirely on location in Europe spanning locations such as the Swiss Alps, the stunning Ligurian coastline, the broad spaces of Provence and the streets of Berlin, VAST presents a uniquely European take on the freeride mountain bike film genre. While the riders may not necessarily be household names, their riding speaks for itself. A perfect companion piece for Lifecycles guaranteed to make you want to get out and ride.

The showing of Seasons at Sheffield will also include Roam!, as they are both films about 35-40 minutes long, and there will be a short making of documentary in between.
We are also reliable informed that (HRH) Steve Peat will be making a personal appearance with some of his team mates and answering a few questions from the audience at the end of the showing, provided ‘things go to plan’.

Brought to us in association with:
The Collective’s new film, the highly anticipated ‘Seasons’, is to be shown in Sheffield at The Showroom, as part of the Tour of a number of cinemas across the UK before the film’s DVD release.
The Showroom is a great venue, it recently hosted ShAFF and is the largest independent cinema outside of London. The date for the showing is to be announced, so we’ll keep you updated. I expect it to will be sometime in May or possibly June. But if you can’t wait that long the UK Premier is to be held at Prince Charles Cinema, London, on the 30th of April.
It is hoped the film will include some of the footage The Collective shot of (HRH) Steve Peat on the No Human Course at Wharncliffe.
We (at Monkeyspoon) are very proud to have been asked to help promote the event, and are also very excited to have been given access to the Seasons website’s Press/Media section, which amongst other things features some amazing high quality stills by photographer Sterling Lorence.
We’ve set up a page with some of beautiful promotion images and more information about the film and venue. So check out the Seasons @ Sheffield page in the Videos section.
