THE GREAT ESCAPE WITH DAN SNOW

THE GREAT ESCAPE WITH DAN SNOW

INFORMATION


On the 75th anniversary of The Great Escape, Dan Snow hosts a commemorative evening featuring The D-Day Darlings and special guests, culminating with a gala screening of the remastered 1963 cult film, starring Steve McQueen.

The live show from London’s Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith will feature Britain’s Got Talent finalists, performing classics such as The White Cliffs of Dover, Don’t Sit Under The Apple Tree and a specially created arrangement of the iconic theme tune. Dan Snow will hear from veterans of the Second World War’s most daring escape and will explore the history and science behind the operation with renowned historian Paul Beaver and Dr Hugh Hunt of the University of Cambridge. Audiences will discover how Squadron Leader Roger Bushell’s ingenious plan inspired one of the most famous war films of all time. The Triumph TR6 motorcycle, ridden by Steve McQueen in the dramatic fence-jump scene, will make a rare appearance on stage.

The film, also starring James Garner and Richard Attenborough and directed by John Sturgess, will be screened in stunning 2K and tells a fictionalised version of the real-life prisoner-of-war story. This anniversary event supports the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, the Royal Air Force’s leading welfare charity, in its centenary year.

 
Running time: approx. 270min.

CERTIFICATION

Event Cinema presentations are classed as 12A by default, except where noted otherwise. This reflects the fact that the BBFC has not examined content, and therefore we are advised that it cannot be determined whether the material contained within the presentation is suitable for children. The applied 12A certificate means that persons under the age of 12 can only be admitted when accompanied by a parent or adult guardian.

In some situations, Event Cinema presentations may have a classification pre-determined by either the venue of origination, or the distributor. These certificates reflect the original ratings applied to the content of any show, for example by the exhibiting theatre. These certificates are clearly displayed next to the presentation title.

Encore performances are always rated by the BBFC. Please note that for 15 & 18 certificate presentations, nobody under that age can be admitted,
