Run, don't walk, for Chariots of Fire. The multi-Academy Award-winning sporting classic recounts the true story of two British sprinters vying for gold in the 1924 Paris Olympic Games.

In the religiously divided United Kingdom of the early 1920s, Christian missionary Eric Liddel (Ian Charleson) sees running as part of his worship of God’s glory, while his rival, Harold Abrahams (Ben Cross), runs to overcome anti-Semitism in his rise to the top.

A rousing British drama which won four Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay and Best Original Score for Vangelis’ soul-stirring synth score.

2024 marks the return of the Olympic Games to Paris, as well as the 100th anniversary of the 1924 Paris games. Time to go for gold on the big screen!
