‘On Any Sunday’ showings May 29 at Truckee High School

Staff report

EDITOR’S NOTE: These showings were originally scheduled for this weekend; however, they’ve since been moved to next weekend to avoid conflicts with the Truckee Home Show.

TRUCKEE, Calif. — Truckee High School will host two showings of the film “On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter” next week.

The screenings at 6 and 8 p.m. Friday, May 29, at the high school’s theater at 11725 Donner Pass Road each cost $5; children 10 and under are free.

When “On Any Sunday” premiered in 1971, it wasn’t just any movie. Directed by Bruce Brown — who also helmed surfing classic “The Endless Summer” — this insider look at motorcycle racing reached a wide audience that was fascinated by the heartfelt stories of real-life riders, earning an Academy Award nomination for Best Documentary Feature.

Four decades later, “On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter” shows that the passion for riding motorcycles is as strong as ever.

“Bruce’s son, acclaimed filmmaker Dana Brown, directs this modern take on the original, capturing what it means to ride in the United States and globally,” according to a news release for the movie.

The showings serve as a fundraiser for Truckee High School. Contact Jim Bennett with questions at jbennett@ttusd.org or 916-517-2323.
