Vue is set to show an exclusive one-off screening of rock sensation, Dave Grohl’s, first ever feature length film, Sound City on Monday 18th February at 8pm.
The legendary lead singer of the Foo Fighters makes his directing debut in the documentary film centred on America’s greatest unsung recording studio, Sound City, which is set deep in the San Fernando Valley, behind the train tracks and amidst dilapidated warehouses. The studio, deemed as rock n' roll's best kept secret, housed a one-of-a-kind recording console, and became the birth place to the seminal albums that defined 20th century music. Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, Rick Springfield, Tom Petty, Nirvana, to name but a few, all put magic to tape within Sound City’s walls.
In the film, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Grohl looks back at the studio’s glory days and features interviews with many of the artists and technicians who worked at Sound City including stars from the
Queens of The Stone Age, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Slipknot, Paul McCartney and Tom Petty. The film also
examines how the rise of digital recording technology has changed the music business and impacted the way
many musicians work.
Sound City will be presented via Vue’s Sony Digital 4K projectors, which deliver a new level of picture quality to
every seat. With four times the megapixels of 2K and HD, theatre fans will be amazed by the detail and fluidity of images. Sony 4K Digital screens give cinema goers an experience they simply can't get at home.
Dave Pearce, Film Buyer at Vue Entertainment, comments, “Following the huge amount of interest in this
unique film, we are incredibly excited to be able to exclusively bring Sound City to the big screen. This film is
