SYNOPSIS

The Great Escape will screen from a 4K digital restoration.

This famed prison-break epic is based on the astonishing true account of Allied prisoners of war who plotted their escape from a German camp during World War II. Steve McQueen stars as Captain Hilts, a heroic tearaway, whose talents on a motorcycle lead to one of the most iconic stunts in Hollywood history. With a cast that includes Charles Bronson, Richard Attenborough, Donald Pleasance and James Coburn, The Great Escape remains a rollicking adventure par excellence.
