The Great Escape

Sunday 16 April
The Great Escape

To round off our 60th anniversary celebration day, we’re “The Great Escape” — the classic movie from 1963, the year Greenhill Library opened.

Based on a true story, a group of allied escape artist-type prisoners-of-war are all put in an “escape proof” camp. Their leader decides to try to take out several hundred all at once. The first half of the movie is played for comedy, as the prisoners mostly outwit their jailers to dig the escape tunnel. The second half is high adventure as they use planes, trains, and boats to get out of occupied Europe.

This is a free showing, you may make a donation on the night. Doors open / refreshments 7.00pm. Film starts 7.30
