MICHAEL CAIN’s latest blockbuster, the true-crime tale King of Thieves, is the next Library Film Club screening on Thursday, February 28.
Cain heads the star-studded cast of big-name Brits, including Tom Courtenay, Michael Gambon, Jim Broadbent, Ray Winstone, Charlie Cox, Paul Whitehouse and Francesca Annis.
Caine stars as one-time notorious thief Brian Reader, now retired but still dreaming of pulling off one final ‘big job’.
To that end, he recruits a gang of fellow retired criminals to plot robbery on a previously unprecedented scale at the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit.
Posing as maintenance workers, the gang managed to escape with over £200 million worth of jewels.
All Library film screenings start at 2pm sharp and admission is strictly limited to Library members only. There is no admission fee, though traditional refreshments, including ice cream, will be on sale during the intermission.
