The Tony Alva Story
Victoria Theatre Fri, Jan 31 7:00 PM
62-year-old Alva is considered to be the godfather of modern day skateboarding. His brand of bravado in the 1970s set the stage for the way skateboarding would be defined. The film is a rollercoaster ride from his ascent to superstardom to drug-induced implosion to his ultimate rise from the ashes.
