Movie fans are getting excited about the exclusive preview screening of the new 4k restoration of 1971 thriller, Get Carter (the original Michael Caine one, not the Sly Stallone remake) being shown at Tyneside Cinema on Saturday 7th May. The preview evening will feature an exclusive Q&A with Tony Klinger (son of the film’s producer Michael Klinger) and Douglas Weir who led on the restoration of the film for the BFI.

Those who are wanting to immerse themselves further in the dark and violent world of Jack Carter will be pleased to know that a documentary about this North-East based crime classic is being made, nearly 50 years after its release. Tony Kilinger, who is a renowned film producer himself (The Kids Are Alright, Shout at The Devil, Gold), is working with directors Wayne Roberts and Rob Fairhurst on the documentary entitled Dirty, Sexy and Totally Iconic, which will interview the movie’s stars, fans, and the new generation of filmmakers who have been influenced by its presence. The film crew have recently filmed in the region and Saturday’s event will be filmed for the documentary, which is out this Autumn.

Tony adds, “It’s more than 50 years since Get Carter was premiered onto the big screen at a Newcastle cinema and our new film will go back to the start of the story and talk to those involved in the making of the film as well as to the super fans that know every statistic and every line of dialogue in the film. It will be a tribute to the movie but also to the sterling work my father did on this classic and iconic piece of cinematic history.”
