We are thrilled to present the World Premiere of this riveting, fast-paced thriller. Jack Cregan, career criminal, family man and vicious armed robber, is on a mission for revenge. When his father, Alfie, is brutally murdered and their money from a Heathrow airport heist is stolen, Jack, his cousin Sammy and gang members Eddie and Frank, realise there is more to the stolen money and Alfie’s murder than meets the eye. And once Jack begins to dig, he knows that his life will never be the same again.
The shattering revelations that follow force Jack, with the clock ticking, to not only pull off one last, dangerous robbery, but also to exact brutal revenge on all those involved. Set against the backdrop of the gritty streets of London and Marbella’s hedonistic glamour on Spain’s seductive Costa del Sol, London Heist is a gripping revenge thriller along the lines of Point Blank meets Heat.
We are delighted that lead actor Craig Fairbrass will be joining us for this screening
ALSO SHOWING: MIDNIGHT OF MY LIFE
Steve Marriott is one of the British music scene's greatest vocalists. It's July 1985, and while rock’n’roll's great and good are strutting their stuff at Wembley, Steve is propping up the bar of a dingy pub in Putney, waiting to play to a small crowd of boozers. While he waits for the rest of his band, bitter and drunk, an encounter with a young revival Mod restores his faith. This heart-felt film is a poignant study of talent, ageing and what success means.
Director Phil Davis (who joined us in 2013 as the lead actor in Borrowed Time) will introduce this screening
