    Hello and to whom it concerns (cuz that sounds official)

    I run a music co-operative in Anchorage Alaska. We are having a thanksgiving celebration and would love to be able to screen the film. I was a big fan of “72 Musicians” which ran a couple of years ago if you are familiar, which I personally rented a theater to show.

    Now I am a partner of this particular non profit art house residency program… and I would LOVE to show your movie.

    how do i make this happen on THANKSGIVING?

    thanks much… and much love.

    Are there any plans for the film to be shown anywhere else?

    As far as I can see it is being show at the Ritzy in Brixton at midday on a work day? ! ?/???

    Are there any other cinemas in London likely to show it?

    I have asked Picture House hackney (sister to Ritzy) if they could possiby show it.

    I am guessing you should also try the Rio in Dalston or the Phoenix in East Finchley as places that would consider showing it

    Hi Paul,

    We have been showing up and down the country since November, these are our very last few shows – we have already shown at The ICA for a week, The Lexi, Greenwich Picturehouse and The Ritzy since last week. If they want to book us in on a matinee slot I’m afraid it’s their call. We’d love to show in Hackney so thanks for your request.

    best wishes

    Hello everyone

    Congratulations on a brilliant movie. Just watched it in The Black Box in Belfast. In a cynical world it has restored my faith in all things good. My sister and her friend cried at the end. Forgot to look at the credits to check the details on the beautiful very last song we hear on the soundtrack. Could you let me know what it is please? Thank you again and all the best for the future.



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.
