A screening of the classic film in the 75th anniversary year of the famous escape, held at the International Bomber Command Centre.

2019 marks the 75th anniversary of the remarkable mass escape of Prisoners of War from Stalag Luft III. To commemorate this historic event the International Bomber Command Centre's (IBCC) 'cinema' will open for showings of the classic film The Great Escape (1963).

1940s-style usherettes will be offering traditional sweets, ice creams and popcorn to munch on, and a bar and hot drinks will be available in the Cinema's lobby.

The IBCC includes a 31 metre tall memorial spire - the UK’s tallest war memorial - and walls that feature the names of all those who lost their lives during the Second World War serving or supporting Bomber Command. There are also two peace gardens - one Lincolnshire and one International - and a state of the art exhibition hall.
