Celebrating bringing films to Stafford for over 70 years
The Gatehouse Theatre has re-opened and is welcoming its customers back...
Mindful of guidance from Public Health England, we are pleased to be able to continue our Autumn 2021/22 season of 12 films in the Gatehouse Theatre.
We really appreciate the support you all give the Film Theatre, and thank you for your understanding during our period of closure. We will endevour to create as safe and comfortable an environment as we can.
in the Gatehouse Theatre, Eastgate Street, Stafford, is:
Sound of Metal
Director: Darius Marder
Running Time : 120 mins
Given the events of the last year, we have consciously aimed to provide a season with several uplifting films, including this excellent opening movie.
Sound of Metal was nominated for six Oscars, including Best
Picture and Best Actor and won two, one being for Best Sound. Rock drummer Ruben (Riz Ahmed) begins to lose his hearing and discovers that cochlear implants may benefit him, but they are not covered by his medical insurance. Persuaded by his girlfriend, he enters a shelter for deaf recovering addicts but he still wants the implants. Desperate to get the implants and recover his hearing, he sells his former home, a motor caravan, to pay for them. The film uses startling sound design techniques so the audiences can experience Ruben’s distorted hearing.
