Put a fence in front of these men, and they’ll climb it! It’s 1942, and in Stalag Luft III a band of Allied POWs agree on only one thing: they’re getting out.
Starring Steve McQueen, The Great Escape is a tale of action, adventure and raw courage – and of course you already know that famous tune! Tonight, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall becomes Liverpool’s biggest cinema, and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra plays Elmer Bernstein’s classic score, live with the film. You know the tune, you know the story – but it’s never sounded this good.
