    I am thrilled to hear about this project. I proudly worked at Action Records in Preston from 1988 to 1996. I began as a shoe gazing indie chick apprentice and with the advent of the acid house explosion found myself appointed to run the newly rented shop next door as a dance vinyl shop for dj’s and enthusiasts.
    For the best part of a year everyone who walked into the shop knew more about the genre than I did but it evolved to become one of the greatest loves (and times)of my life.
    I am delighted to say that Action Records is still trading and my tummy turns over every time I approach it.
    I believe that it is massively important to preserve our musical heritage through these stoic indie retailers and applaud you for making this film.
    Can’t wait to see it.
    Best of luck with it – if I can help in any way please feel free to contact me.
    Kindest Regards.

    P.s. Chorley Little theatre is a tiny fab venue that does screenings. Lovely people run it and it is near Manchester Bolton and Preston.

    What about showing it on Teesside? ‘The Arc’ would seem the most logical place. Cheers

    Any chance in hell at a screening in NYC, USA?
    I would say that Film Forum, Angelika, and the IFC Center would all be interested in your documentary.
    The trailer just looks awesome, and as someone who’s seen my 2 favorite childhood shops close up in the past 5 years, this documentary really hits a nerve.
    Great job. Keep up the good fight!
    VINYL RULES!!!!!!!!!

    Hi Zack,

    We did a week long at ReRun in Brooklyn a couple of months ago and showed at Film Forum on Record Store Day. Could I ask a favour – could you request the film at Film Forum, Angelika, and the IFC Center – see if they will bring the film back!

    Thanks so much for your interest. Join our mailing list / facebook and if we show again in the US you’ll be the first to know!

    Hi Steve,
    You could host a screening with Dogwoof – invite your friends, charge a fee, have a vinyl party!

    I have emailed the Cornerhouse in Manchester asking if they have any plans to show it. Cinema 3 (seats about 60)would be ok. You may like to give them a call.

    Hi Stuart, thanks for your comment. We’d love to show at Cornerhouse – do ask your friends to request the film as well. Good cinemas listen to their audience :o)

    Hello, The Cube, Arnolfini or Watershed in Bristol would be suitable for screening this film. Look forward to seeing it!


Glimmer Films in association with Sideshow present a film by Jeanie Finlay; SOUND IT OUT.

Over the last five years an independent record shop has closed in the UK every three days.

SOUND IT OUT is a documentary portrait of the very last surviving vinyl record shop in Teesside, North East England.

A cultural haven in one of the most deprived areas in the UK, SOUND IT OUT documents a place that is thriving against the odds and the local community that keeps it alive. Directed by Jeanie Finlay who grew up three miles from the shop.

A distinctive, funny and intimate film about men, the North and the irreplaceable role music plays in our lives.

High Fidelity with a Northern Accent.
