20th Century Cube Presents Breaking Away

Thu 26 May 2011 // 20:00

(Thu 26th May / 8pm / £5/4)

The Cube and 20th Century Flicks have formed a cinematic alliance, devoted to giving you the chance to see some of your favourite films on the big screen. Each month a film of singular greatness will be shown, the first of which is Peter Yates’ Breaking Away: a coming-of-age cycling drama from 1979. During the summer of their high school graduation, Dave and his buddies wrestle with the vagaries of growing up in a small town, their fractious relationship with the gown crowd attending the nearby college and Dave’s eccentric love of Italy and cycling. A classic of feel-good cinema.
