Neston Flicks – The Great Escaper

This event has ended

The Great Escaper, with Michael Caine and Glenda Jackson starring in this true story of 89-year-old veteran Bernard Jordan. Royal Navy veteran Bernie “broke out” of his nursing home to attend the 70th anniversary D-Day commemorations in France in June 2014, making global headlines, and embodying the defiant, “can-do” spirit of a generation.

The film marks the final screen performances for both lead actors: Jackson died nine months after filming finished and Caine announced his retirement from acting in October 2023.
