Regent Street Cinema Presents: The Wild Bunch
Enjoy one of the greatest films of the '60s at Britain’s oldest cinema
Regent Street Cinema is Britain's oldest picturehouse. On 21 February 1896, it became the birthplace of cinema in the UK, when the Lumière brothers used their Cinematographé machine to show the earliest of moving images to a paying audience. Having reopened in May 2015, the staff have been dedicated to engaging with the cinema's groundbreaking legacy, showcasing everything from classic films, internationally acclaimed work and even the odd blockbuster. A gang of outlaws plan one final score to set them up for retirement. Sam Peckinpah’s epic western remains an American masterpiece. Shockingly violent for the time, it has lost none of its punch, or its caustic self-reflexive commentary on that violence. "Seeing this restored version is like understanding the film at last." – Roger Ebert "One of the great artistic achievements of the 20th century. And a bloody awesome western to boot!" – Film4 Certificate: 18. Running time: 1 hour 25 minutes.
"The Wild Bunch is an American masterpiece, one of the greatest films ever produced in the Hollywood system."
