Following the re-release of 1964’s Goldfinger in UK theatres last July, yet another classic James Bond film will soon be hitting the big screen once again: The Spy Who Loved Me.
‘The Spy Who Loved Me’ – Restored And Back In Action
The James Bond classic, The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) is to be presented, back on the big screen, in a glorious digital restoration at a special event in one of London’s biggest cinema venues.
The classic action thriller, directed by Lewis Gilbert and starring Roger Moore as James Bond, is a firm favourite with fans everywhere. The film was nominated for three Academy Awards, and features many iconic scenes, including Bond’s Lotus car turning into a submarine and his first encounter with Jaws (Richard Kiel).
The special screening will be held at the Empire Leicester Square, Screen 1, on Sunday 20 April at 1.30pm for 2pm. In attendance at the event will be several people involved in the making of the film, including director Lewis Gilbert and actor Caroline Munro.
The Spy Who Loved Me is being presented by Park Circus, the UK’s leading distributor of classic and back catalogue films for theatrical exhibition. The company successfully re-issued the earlier Bond Goldfinger back into cinemas last year. Park Circus currently represents over 7000 titles from Arrow Films, Granada International, Icon Entertainment International, MGM/UA, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, UK and other film collections.
Tickets for the screening are on sale now from Empire Cinemas, via www.empirecinemas.co.uk.
