The culture of motorcycling explored

Dec 29, 2013
“Why We Ride” is about the passion of motorcycle riders and the soul of their machines.

Rockland — The Strand Theatre, 345 Main St., will screen the new documentary “Why We Ride” for two shows only: Saturday, Jan. 11, at 8 p.m.; and Sunday, Jan. 12, at 3 p.m.

Directed by Bryan H. Carroll, the family-friendly film explores who motorcyclists are as individuals, with a desire to dream, explore and seek a life outside daily confinements. Their motorcycles can represent life’s milestones, from a kid’s dream come true to a retiree’s return to freedom. For many, motorcycling is about the journey, not the destination; it’s about the passion of the riders and the “soul” of their machines.

The film is rated PG. Tickets are $8.50, $7.50 for students, senior citizens and for all at the matinee. For more information on all upcoming films, live concerts, HD broadcasts and events at the Strand, visit; call 594-0070, ext. 3; or email
