See “Whip It,” the movie that inspired a whole generation of derby girls.
Meet Los Alamos’ own roller derby team, the M’Atom Bombs, before the movie.
The team is part of the local league, the LA Derby Dames. The event starts at 6 p.m. and the movie begins at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 4 at Mesa Public Library.
This is a free event.
“Whip It” is based on the 2007 novel “Derby Girl” by former competitor Shauna Cross.
The film stars Ellen Page as Bliss Cavendar, a small-town misfit who finds her true passion when she joins an Austin roller derby league.
The movie was produced and directed by Drew Barrymore.
