When: Friday, March 4, 2011, at 7:00 p.m.

Where: Century Cycles, 19955 Detroit Road, Rocky River OH  44116

Cost: Free and open to everyone who has ever really loved a bicycle. No RSVP necessary.

For more information: Go to, call 440-356-5705, or email

Event details: Besides hanging out with a bunch of folks who are also very grateful for the arrival of prime bicycling weather, come to the party to see clips from the movie, enjoy tasty drive-in snacks and beverages, test your movie trivia prowess, win prizes (both movie and bicycling-related), and maybe even dance along with Pee-Wee to the song "Tequila" (white platform shoes optional).

About "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure"

Bicycling Magazine has dubbed the "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure" "the greatest cycling movie ever made." They said: "While other [bicycling movies] celebrate cycling as a sport or use it as a metaphor for broader lessons, ‘Pee-Wee's Big Adventure' is simply the most loving movie tribute ever made to owning a bike. We're not talking about breezy ‘I love my bike' love. We're talking deep, obsessive, freaky, alarming-to-friends-and-pets bike love."

"Pee-Wee's Big Adventure" debuted in theaters in 1985 and celebrated its 25th anniversary last year. The adventure comedy was directed by Tim Burton and stars Paul Reubens as Pee-Wee Herman. It tells the story of Pee-Wee Herman embarking on a nationwide adventure in search of his stolen bicycle.
