A cold-blooded London criminal returns to his hometown in Newcastle following the supposedly accidental death of his brother. Suspecting foul play, and with vengeance on his mind, he embarks on a brutal investigation to uncover the truth. A gritty and sleazy 1970s gangster classic that is now acknowledged as one of the greats of British cinema, resorted and re-released by the BFI.
‘It is a violent kitchen-sink pulp with the observational brilliance and dour working-class realism of something by Ken Loach’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
