British classic, Get Carter, has finally been restored in 4K and is our August Forum Film Club screening followed by a post-film discussion in our cafe/bar! The screening will also be preceded by a short pre-recorded film about Get Carter.

This gritty 1970s gangster classic has become acknowledged as one of the greats of British cinema. Jack Carter (Caine), a London gangster, travels to Newcastle after his brother is killed in a supposed accident but Carter suspects that things may not be as they seem.

Using his documentary, realist aesthetic, Hodges’ first feature is a violent, uncompromising classic of the genre, featuring outstanding performances from Caine and Hendry, not to mention Newcastle itself, and is also notable for the extraordinarily quick turnaround from the book being published and the film being made (eight months).
