If you’re a cyclist (especially a middle aged male), you may already be familiar with the term MAMIL. Short for Middle Aged Male In Lycra, it could be misconstrued as an insult, but for many, it’s a term of endearment. In order to better understand this mindset, a new documentary is set to air in theaters across the globe later this month.
In a partnership with Cycliq, MAMIL will be showing in Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, the UK, and the USA, all on Wednesday February 21st. There are a handful of theaters that will also show the film on Monday, April 9th, but the majority of theaters will show the film on the same night in February.
Narrated by Phil Ligget (who else?), the documentary is the work of Nickolas Bird, Mark Bird, and Eleanor Sharpe, and focuses on the underlying motivations of different MAMILs around the world.
Here in the U.S., the film will be presented by Demand Film through special arrangements with Regal, Edwards, and UA Cinemas. Tickets must be purchased in advance, and you can find the closes theater and order tickets here.
