SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Opening in the Wells Fargo CineDome on Sat., May 26, 2007 and running though Oct., 5 is Wired to Win: Surviving the Tour de France. The film will be shown on the even hours.

Wired to Win examines what goes on inside the heads of those brave individuals who battle the twisting turns, high-speed descents and grueling hills of the world’s most famous bike race. Filled with magnificent footage never before obtained during the Tour De France, Wired to Win is narrated by award-winning, British actor Alfred Molina.

Wired to Win follows the experience of Tour De France riders Baden Cooke from Australia and his French teammate, Jimmy Casper, as they compete in the 2,112 mile, three-week-long race. Movie goers will ride along as Cook and Casper and other cyclists traverse the towering peaks of the Alps, whip through tiny French villages and onto the cobblestone streets of Paris as they attempt to avoid certain injury, deny crushing pain and control their emotions as they seek victory.

The production company achieved unmatched access to the Tour and as a result Wired to Win is rife with striking footage and engaging medical and computer-generated imagery designed to not only relate the thrilling race experience but demonstrate how the human body and mind deals with this one of a kind challenge.

Accompanying Wired to Win in the Wells Fargo CineDome is the return of the extremely popular Dolphins. Set against the dazzling coral reefs of the Bahamas and the wind swept seas of Patagonia, Dolphins is a visual feast for the entire family. This large format friendly film takes viewers along with three scientists as they embark on an underwater adventure with inquisitive Atlantic spotted dolphins, acrobatic dusky dolphins and the more familiar bottle-nosed dolphins. Dolphins will be shown on the odd hours.
