The creme de la creme of spaghetti westerns
Take a step into British cinematic history at the Regent Street Cinema. Britain's oldest cinema, it was the first place in the country to ever show moving pictures. It kickstarted British cinema with a screening of Cinematographe in 1896. Now, you can catch a special screening of the spaghetti western classic, The Good, The Bad And The Ugly. Arguably the greatest of the spaghetti westerns, the action unfolds when a bounty hunting scam joins two men in an uneasy alliance against a third in a race to find a fortune in gold buried in a remote cemetery. With a career-defining performance from Clint Eastwood and an unforgettable score from the inimitable Ennio Morricone, this is right up there with the best of them. "Sergio Leone's grandiose 1966 western epic is nothing less than a masterclass in movie storytelling, a dynamic testament to the sheer, invigorating uniqueness of cinema." – Time Out "Art it is, summoned out of the imagination of Leone and painted on the wide screen so vividly that we forget what marginal productions these films were." – Roger Ebert Certificate: 18. Valid ID required. Running time: 2 hours 41 minutes.
"Sergio Leone's masterpiece is as enduring as the scorched desert in which it is filmed. Also receives props for most effective use of whistling ever."
