Good Vibrations

Details

Good Vibrations is a 2013 biopic of Terri Hooley, and details one man's passion for music. Hooley opened Good Vibrations record shop during the times of The Troubles in 1970s Belfast. Hooley faced a lot of highs and some lows and this film follows his adventures in music and shows how music can create a community.

The purpose of Good Vibrations record shop was to promote peace through music, mostly reggae, but the direction of the shop changes when he is introduced to punk and the band Rudi! The energy of the band and the genre inspires him to form a label and becomes a creative force that a certain Feargal Sharkey wants to sign for, which then gains The Undertones ‘Teenage Kicks’ a momentous back-to-back playing on John Peel’s radio show – a euphoric moment! Hooley puts his heart and soul into his endeavours, which puts a strain on relationships and finances so puts on a one last ditch fundraiser attempt at Belfast’s iconic Ulster Hall.

There is a stellar cast involved in this film and Richard Dormer puts on an incredible performance as Hooley and you can’t help but root for him with his loveable wide-eyed charm and optimism. The other members of the cast are brilliant as well including Jodie Whittaker (the new Doctor Who!).

This is a film for those with an idealistic and rebel punk spirit, lust for life and love of music and records. It has humour and heart and is inspirational. Come and see this fantastic film about the power of music in the place where music rules, Jumbo Records!

Directors – Lisa Barros D’Sa and Glenn Leyburn / 2013 / UK & Ireland / 103 minutes / certificate 15

Come to Jumbo Records for the film from 6pm. There will be an introductory talk to give you an insight into life at Jumbo Records.
