Our May main film will be The Great Escaper...

In the summer of 2014, the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings, Bernie Jordan (Michael Caine in his final film)  "escapes" from his care home to join fellow war veterans on a beach in Normandy, commemorating their fallen comrades. It was a story that captured the imagination of the world.

'There’s a real emotional heft to the storytelling and Caine, at 90, is a knockout.' Wendy Ide, The Observer (UK)

'The Great Escaper is a salute to a generation who we should cherish.' Grant Rollings, the Sun (UK)

Tickets cost £5 for adults and £2.50 for under 18s and are available online now.
