Is the real city the one you live out your life in or the one you see up on the screen in the darkness of the cinema? Film directors and scriptwriters use the city as a backdrop for the stories they tell, but they also become a real part of the story. When we visit these cinematic cities there is a real sense of having been there before, seeking out the familiar landscapes, buildings, and sites that are familiar from the films.
Harold, a prosperous English gangster, is about to close a lucrative new deal when bombs start showing up in very inconvenient places. A mysterious syndicate is trying to muscle in on his action, and Harold wants to know who they are. He finds out soon enough, and bloody mayhem ensues.
The film will be introduced by Dr. Les Roberts from the University of Liverpool, Department of Communication Studies. Doors open at 6pm. Introduction starts 6.15pm.
The Liverpool Architectural Society Film Series 2017-18 is supported by the Royal Institute of British Architects Local Initiative Fund.
