A labour of love for all involved, one of the most eagerly anticipated films to come out of Belfast is finally here.

Good Vibrations is the heart-warming and uplifting story of Belfast music legend Terri Hooley, the man responsible for discovering The Undertones and recording Teenage Kicks, giving alternative music a chance to flourish in 1970s Belfast.

We are delighted to be screening a film born, bred and buttered in Belfast, the most eagerly anticipated local film ever, Good Vibrations.

This rollicking biopic is the big screen life story of Terri Hooley, Godfather of Ulster punk and the owner of Belfast's most famous record shop.

Our special Film Club guest is the film's award-winning editor Nick Emerson.

Brian Henry Martin

Terri Hooley (Richard Dormer) is a radical, rebel and music lover in 1970s Belfast when the Troubles shuts down his city.

As all his friends take sides and take up arms, Terri opens a record shop on the most bombed half mile in Europe and calls it Good Vibrations.

Through it he discovers a compelling voice of resistance in the city's nascent underground punk scene.

Galvanising the young musicians into action, he becomes the unlikely leader of a motley band of kids and punks who join him in his mission to create a new community, an alternative Ulster, to bring his city back to life.
