We’ve worked with distributor Music Box Films to make it possible for you to see BEATS — and your ticket helps support the Belcourt. For $12, you can purchase a ticket for BEATS. Once purchased, you’ll have a 3-day / 72-hour pass to see the film alongside an exclusive pre-recorded conversation with director Brian Welsh and executive producer Steven Soderbergh, moderated by Slamdance's Peter Baxter (presented by Slamdance). Music Box Films will share a portion of your ticket payment with the Belcourt. Please note that this arrangement, in these unprecedented times, means we’re unable to offer member pricing. Thanks for your understanding and for your support. And if you’d like to consider an additional donation to the Belcourt, we’d be most grateful. You can do so here. Note: Music Box Films is supported by Eventive. After clicking the ‘unlock now’ button you’ll need to create an account to pay for your ticket, but no monthly or annual subscription is needed. Your account will also ensure that you’re able to pause and revisit the film within your rental period. BEATS is watchable via: (1) Smart TV — using the browser on your Apple TV, Android TV, Fire TV, Roku or Chromecast; (2) Mobile device — iPhone, iPad, Android; and (3) Computer by clicking on the link in your email receipt. For further details, see Eventive’s FAQs here.
A universal story of friendship, rebellion and the irresistible power of music set against the backdrop of the Britain’s Criminal Justice and Public Order Act of 1994, which banned unlicensed raves across the U.K. BEATS follows best friends and polar opposites, Johnno and Spanner—who, realizing they are destined for different futures, sneak out to an illegal party in pursuit of one last crazy night together.
“This tender, detail-filled movie lives for the moment.” —Ben Kenisberg, New York Times “A hands-in-the-air joyride.” —Alex Godfrey, Time Out "Pure cinema—a throbbing trip into the heart of a moment." —David Erlich, IndieWire
