‘If the musicians ain’t got a chance to live, then what chance has the music got?’ Dr John.
This is a beautifully crafted, feature documentary, rich with colourful characters, and set in the iconic musical backdrop of New Orleans.
In 2005 the music stopped, when one of the most deadly and destructive hurricanes in American history struck.
This musical labour of love celebrates the sounds of New Orleans with enthusiasm and affection
“packs a heavy emotional punch“

Frances McDormand excels as a mother taunting the police to uncover the truth about her daughter’s death
Mark Kermode, Observer film critic
“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is not going to win any awards for punchiest film title of the year but it’s a startling piece of work: a perverse, comic and tragic revenge story in which all the characters defy our often very low expectations of them.”
Geofrey Macnab, The Independent

Magic Rock Tap
Shhh! Cinema presents: Vanishing Point (Cert. 18)
Sunday 30 September
Magic Rock Tap, Willow Lane, Huddersfield, HD1 5EB
Doors 18:00pm/Film starts 18:30pm
Director: Richard C. Sarafian
Stars: Barry Newman, Cleavon Little, Charlotte Rampling
Our season opener is a full-on cult classic and a rare opportunity to watch it on the big screen.
Vanishing Point is a weirdly cool, existential car chase movie from 1971. It’s a high concept movie as a dude named Kowalski (Barry Newman) has to drive from Colorado to San Fran in under fifteen hours to meet a bet, cops be damned. All to a cool retro soundtrack of American soul, blues and rock.
It’s a film about the need for speed and going out in a blaze of glory. The dusty American desert horizon has never looked so dangerous and enticing….
