Marking its 60th anniversary in 2017, Alec Guinness and William Holden star in this Oscar-winning World War II epic. When British POWs build a vital railway bridge in enemy-occupied Burma, Allied commandos are assigned to destroy it in David Lean’s spectacular film which captured the imagination of the public and won seven 1957 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Director. Even it’s theme song, an old WWII whistling tune, the Colonel Bogey March, became a massive hit. It continues today as one of the most memorable cinematic experiences of all time.
All seats £7 (theatre members £6)
