In fact, it’s coming your way next month, appearing at selected cinemas, but a good number of places across the UK. I’ll list the ones confirmed at the end of the article.

As for the film itself, well you know all about that. But just in case you have managed to avoid it since 1969 (if that is remotely possible), here’s the storyline.

Fresh out of prison, petty criminal Charlie Crocker (Michael Caine) has the plans for the ultimate heist – a four-million-dollar bullion robbery from an armoured car in Turin. Turning to an old prison enemy for help backing the scheme, Charlie surprisingly receives the veteran convict’s support and goes about organising a motley group of thieves to pull off the plan.

Great story, great cast and of course, a cracking soundtrack, which is available on CD and vinyl (the CD is only a fiver these days). Talking of buying, you can get the DVD and Blu-ray pretty cheaply too if you can’t get out to see it.

But if you can, the bulk of the screenings are down for 16th June as a Father’s Day Special, with a couple of screenings before and after that date. As I said, all listed below if you want to see if it’s showing at your local movie house.
