No Hand King 

When: Thu., Nov. 19 2015



RIALTO THEATRE—Rodney Hines, better known as the No Hand King, has become one of Raleigh's contemporary folk heroes. His nickname comes from his habit—or way of life, really—of riding long wheelies around the city with two huge American flags waving proudly from the back of his bike. Though he makes it look easy, his cycling feats are hardly casual: Last summer, he went so far as to attempt a wheelie for a full 50-mile stretch of the Outer Banks. Mid-June heat kept him from completing it with 19 miles left. Raleigh filmmaker Patrick Shanahan was there to film the attempt, and his documentary also explores Hines' journey to becoming the No Hand King. 6, 7:30 and 9 p.m., $10, 1620 Glenwood Ave., Raleigh, 919-856-8683, —Allison Hussey
