The Dam Busters

This movie is from our archive and is not currently screening.

The Dam Busters has been given a 4K restoration ahead of a cinematic re-release to celebrate the 75th anniversary of one of the most iconic missions of World War II.

After inventing the "bouncing bomb," which can skip across water until it encounters a dam to explode, Dr. Barnes Wallis struggles for years to develop his new device for use in World War II. Once the bombs are ready to be tested, Wing Commander Guy Gibson's squadron must be specially trained to drop the sensitive weapons on Germany's Ruhr Dams. Based on true events, this British film features a legendary grand finale of special effects

‘The great George Lucas, while preparing ‘Star Wars’, would run the film time and time again to watch the low flying sequences, and would be inspired by them.’
The Dam Busters director, Michael Anderson
