Tuesday Film – Sneakers

UGT Tuesday evening films – once a month.

Tuesday 25th July at 7.15pm. Venue and coffee bar open at 6.45pm.

Tickets are just £4.

This cinema is set in traditional and table style, allowing you to take drinks and food in with you to enjoy at leisure throughout the film.

The UGT technician Chris Leach – himself a big film buff – will take pleasure in give a short powerpoint presentation before this film – incidentally, one of his all-time movie favourites – detailing why the film is of note, and highlighting the career of the lead(s).



Sneakers is a 1992 American comedy caper film, in which a security professional finds his past coming back to haunt him, when he and his unique team are tasked with retrieving a particularly important item.

It stars Robert Redford, Dan Aykroyd, Ben Kingsley, Mary McDonnell, River Phoenix, Sidney Poitier, and David Strathairn.

Despite its relative obscurity, Sneakers is quickly becoming a cult favorite of the internet generation. It’s a perfect blend of romance, tech and adventure that highlights the increasing importance of information. The always beautiful Mary McDonnell as Liz doesn’t hurt, either.

The soundtrack is arguably the best of the late great James Horner‘s film scores pre-dating Braveheart, with an ethereal jazzy feel that sets the mood from the opening credits and takes you on a wonderful journey to the other side of  the two hour movie.

For an early nineties movie, Sneakers is remarkably forward thinking in its script and plot. Many of its themes have only become more relevant with the flowering of the data network.

This classic film will be preceded by a short powerpoint presentation by film buff and UGT technician Chris Leach, who’ll be giving an upbeat glimpse into who’s who in the film, what impact it made at the time, and what to look out for.

Tickets: £4.
