  1. I do not have a tv. Is there any sports bar, etc, showing the film. It would be fun to watch as Roller Derby was a mainstay on TV during the early 50’s when I was a kid – the days of roller days from the Olympic Auditorium in L. The guys and girls I watched, if they haven’t passed, would be great grand parents now.

      We don’t have a showing planned–we just heard about this from our new friend Jerry Seltzer! I don’t have a TV either, so if there’s something I need to see I usually call the bar (hotel bars are usually good for this since they rarely have karaoke, trivia night, bands, or other events scheduled) and ask in advance if I can view there. It’s a Monday night so shouldn’t be too busy.

      Keep an eye out, though…we are working with the producer/director of “Blood on the Flat Track” to try to host a showing of that documentary (on modern roller derby) at a theater in August.
