Pitch Cinema: The Italian Job - 26th June

Negroni Week comes to Stratford between 24th-30th June, and what better way to mark this meeting between east London and this most Italian of mixed drinks than by sticking on the all-time classic, The Italian Job?

Penned by Z Cars writer Kennedy Martin, The Italian Job is a story of charmingly absurdist conceits.

A gang of cockney villains, led by small-time thief Charlie Croker (Caine), undertake a daring gold bullion robbery in the heart of Turin dressed as English football fans and driving a trio of Union Jack colour-coded Minis (surely the most identifiable getaway cars in the history of crime).

Chaos and multiple moments of timeless movie gold ensue, and it features perhaps the greatest car chase scene in the history of cinema. Add stunning Continental vistas and the kind of crowd-pleasing antics that only really take flight in the cinema, an opportunity to catch it on a big outdoor screen isn’t one to be missed.
