An informal screening of this iconic classic. It’s time to sit back and relax and enjoy the film. With our new screening time of 1pm, why not arrive for an early lunch in The Café at G Live, which opens from 10.30am – 4pm. You can also purchase drinks and snacks to take into the screening.

A 1957 epic war film directed by David Lean and based on the 1952 novel written by Pierre Boulle, now widely recognized as one of the greatest films ever made.

British POWs are forced to build a railway bridge across the river Kwai for their Japanese captors in occupied Burma, not knowing that the allied forces are planning a daring commando raid through the jungle to destroy it.

Starring William Holden and Alec Guinness.

Did you know? Colonel Saito was inspired by Major Risaburo Saito, who, unlike the character portrayed in this movie, was said by some to be one of the most reasonable and humane of all of the Japanese officers.
