January 20, 2010 - The Great Escape

The Great Escape is truly an epic film. Telling the story of a group of P.O.W.'s in World War II German prison camp, it features an all star cast including Steve McQueen, James Garner, Charles Bronson, Donald Pleasence and James Coburn.

It's a long film, but one that is entertaining from start to finish. Between the great characters and performances to the brilliant Elmer Bernstein score, there's lots to enjoy here. John Sturges knew what he was doing - he reassembled many of the folks he had worked with on The Magnificent Seven.

Because of it's length, it's a film I grew up watching on television spread over two nights. I am very excited to finally be watching it on a big screen.

We hope you'll join us for this inspirational tale on January 20th.
