Get Carter is 40

The 40th anniversary of film Get Carter , starring Michael Caine, was celebrated on Tyneside over the weekend and in particular at the Tyneside Cinema , one of Newcastle's cultural gems. The film was made   on location in and around Newcastle upon Tyne in 1971. The opening sequence of the movie, which features the iconic music score by Roy Budd, can be seen here:  Get Carter . The Tyneside Cinema hosted a special screening featuring a Q&A session between the film's director Mike Hodges  and local writer  Mike Chaplin.


  1. Love this shot. Great poster.Michael Caine has always been wonderful.

  2. Wonderful shot. I wonder how many local extras in the film are still living there.

  3. I dig the poster. I've not seen the movie, and I agree with Luis. Caine is good in everything he does.
