The Italian Job

9 December 2021 | 7:00 pm

$10.00

The Italian Job UK, USA, 1969. Directed by Peter Collinson. 99 min. NR

The quintessential British caper film of the 1960s, The Italian Job is a flashy, fast romp that chases a team of career criminals throughout one of the biggest international gold heists in history. Michael Caine is Charlie Croker, a stylish robber and skirt-chaser just out of British prison. Shunning rehabilitation for recidivism, Croker takes over The Italian Job, a complicated plan to hijack gold bullion from Italy — right from underneath the noses of the Italian Police and the Mafia. The job, whose original mastermind was murdered, clearly requires the sponsorship of a richer, more established criminal than Croker. He turns to the auspices of the eccentric Mr. Bridger (Noël Coward in his last film role), a suave, regal, incarcerated English crime boss with a peculiar fascination with the Queen. Bridger provides Croker with a quirky group of Britain’s most infamous computer hackers (including a lascivious Benny Hill), bank robbers, hijackers, and getaway drivers — the ex-con is soon well on his way to relieving Italy of the gold. “The brio and ambition of The Italian Job can’t be doubted and Caine has enormous charisma.” -Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian Niagara Artists Centre Cinema Lounge 354 St Paul Street. St. Catharines ON Doors at 7PM/Screening starts at 7:30PM This is an indoor event/ proof of vaccination required at entry. Limited capacity with social distancing measures in place.
