Spring Programme: The Big Short

Wed 25 May
8:00pm to 10:15pm
£2 + Booking Fee

As early as March of 2005, a small handful of commodities traders, financial analysts and stock speculators were able to foretell the spectacular and unprecedented collapse of the American banking sector; the biggest since the Great Depression. With banks convolutedly shifting money between various failing accounts based on a housing market previously thought infallible, a widespread fraud that few could see unfolding was about to come tumbling down.

Won an Oscar®.
