A Pedal Powered, Outdoor Screening of

‘The Italian Job’. (PG)

‘The Italian Job’ is a classic British caper film of the 1960s starring Michael Caine.  A fast and stylish romp, “The Italian Job,” is a complicated plan to hijack gold bullion from Italy — right from underneath the noses of the Italian Police and the Mafia.

This free event will be held at dusk on 19th September 2015 at the Big Park and will be powered by members of the audience pedalling on specially adapted bikes. Doors open at 7 pm where pizza, popcorn and a bar will be open for you to stock up on refreshments before the main feature starts at 8 pm.
