The Armstrong Lie - new documentary showing in DC and Bethesda on Fri, November 15
POSTED: 11/08/13 10:04 AM

In 2008, Academy Award winning filmmaker Alex Gibney set out to make a documentary about Lance Armstrong's comeback to the world of competitive cycling. Charting Armstrong's life-story (and given unprecedented access to both the Tour and Armstrong), Gibney began filming what he initially envisioned as the ultimate comeback story — Armstrong's return from his 2005 retirement and his attempt to win his eighth Tour. Gibney set out to chronicle a comeback, but instead the film emerges as a riveting insider's view, chronicling the collapse of one of the greatest sports legends of our time. As Lance Armstrong tells Gibney's camera: "I didn't live a lot of lies, but I lived one big one." http://www.sonyclassics.com/thearmstronglie/site/

I was fortunate to view a private screening of the film before it's release and definitely recommend it! For what it's worth, the film has also received amazing reviews.

There is now a small national roll-out schedule, including November 15 at the E-Street Cinema in D.C. and Bethesda Row Cinema in Bethesda. Looks like for now it's one night only both places, but if the smaller scale release gets a good reception Sony will roll this out for a longer duration.

Link for tickets? The site sent me to Fandango which returned not results. Check Bethesda Row and no luck there as well.

Thanks, Brady

I tried to search fandango as well but it wouldn't let me search that far in advance for tickets. My advice would be to check the theater websites and fandango next week.

Thanks for posting. Very cool that you got a pre-screening!
Landmark theatres website says it coming to E Street in DC but no date.
In for catching it! Trailer
