The Italian Job (1969), one of the most iconic British films, will return to the big screen for a very special performance at The Bridgewater Hall with a big band and orchestra playing the score live to picture.
Written by Troy Kennedy Martin and directed by Peter Collinson, the Comedy-Caper tells the story of Charlie Croker’s (Michael Caine) plan to steal a shipment of gold by bringing Turin’s traffic to a standstill, financed from prison by exquisitely-presented crime boss Mr Bridger (Noël Coward).
The stunning HD remastered version of the film will be accompanied by a live orchestra for the first time, playing the famous soundtrack by legendary composer and producer Quincy Jones, including the song ‘On Days Like These’ during the opening sequence, brilliantly funny and jazzy underscore and, of course, the riotous ‘The Self-Preservation Society’.
