Michael McCallum’s ‘Handlebar’ celebrates its 10th anniversary

Posted by


It has been ten years since Michael McCallum’s feature film, “Handlebar” was released.  Where does time go? This coming Sunday,  this Michael McCallum feature will show at  The Robin Theatre, 1105 S Washington Ave, REO Town, Lansing, Michigan.  Showtime is from 7-10 PM.

Coming in at just over an hour in length, “Handlebar” was the story of Dwayne and Benny two low-level, bungling thieves that are hired by an inner-city mafioso to kidnap a rival’s daughter. Instead, they make the biggest mistake possible: taking the boss’s daughter.


Written by Michael McCallum, Shane Hagedorn,  Anthony E. Griffin, and Justin Muschong directed by Michael McCallum, “Handlebar” starred Michael McCallum, Shane Hagedorn,

On the same bill is Rebel Pictures’ short comedy, “The Pewter Bros.,” which will open the show.

There will also be a Q&A with Michael’s father, and star of Rebel Pictures’ award-winning feature film, “Buffalo,”  William C. McCallum, and Michael, himself.

Local writer and film enthusiast, Mary Cusack will also be present for questions.

Local artist, Dennis Preston, will also be doing caricatures after the films! He created the wonderful movie poster to “Handlebar”!

It‘s crazy to think this dark comedy was released 10 years ago.

“We hope to see you celebrate this Michigan made film and the second award-winning feature from Rebel Pictures!”
