Cheetah: The Nelson Vails Story

Celebrate May Is Bike Month with a screening of Cheetah: The Nelson Vails Story at the Crest Theatre. Directed by Stephane Gauger, this 2014 documentary chronicles the journey of the Harlem-born and raised Vails, who in 1984 became the first (and to this day remains the only) African-American to win an Olympic medal in cycling. Vails will be in attendance at the screening, and VIP tickets will include a post-film meet-and-greet with the athlete. Saturday, May 10, 7 p.m. $25-$75. 1013 K Street; www.thecrest.com.
