Thief 18

Fri 12 – Sat 13 Aug | Tickets £5 (+50p admin fee for non–members)



"★★★★ – unrolled the blueprint for Mann's meticulous aesthetic" – Empire


Screening to mark the passing of Hollywood icon James Caan, he is on terrific form here as Frank – and Michael Mann’s influential minimalist neo-noir looks as authentic and original today as it did in 1981.


Determined to lead a normal life, professional safecracker Frank agrees to one last heist... but things are never simple when you’re working for the mob.


Mann used real thieves as technical advisors on the film and the Tangerine Dream soundtrack is a joy; Donald Thorin’s moody and brilliant cinematography seals the deal.


All tickets £5 (+50p admin fee for non-members).
