Long before The Irishman, there were Goodfellas. Strand Arts Centre celebrates 30 years of this other Scorsese gangster masterpiece, a gritty, kinetic adaptation of Nicolas Pileggi’s best-selling Wiseguy.

Young Henry Hill (Ray Liotta), with his friends Jimmy (Robert De Niro) and Tommy (Oscar-winning Joe Pesci), begins the climb from being a petty criminal to a mobster on the mean streets of New York.

Screening on glorious 35mm. We might even throw in a couple of old adverts knocking about the projection room.
