Peripheral Visions, a co-presentation of the Belcourt Theatre and Third Man Records, will screen at the Belcourt for the next few months, while we take a brief hiatus from its original home in Third Man’s Blue Room. Join us as we continue to celebrate the very best of underappreciated genre films from the 70s and 80s.

Originally aired on the BBC in September 1984, this bleak portrait of the devastating effects of a nuclear attack shocked tens of millions of UK viewers. Four months later, it was broadcast in America and became the most watched basic cable program in history. After more than three decades, it remains one of the most acclaimed and shattering made-for-television movies of all time. This “graphic and haunting” (People magazine) docudrama shows the fallout from a nuclear event on the working-class city of Sheffield, England as the fabric of society unravels. The Guardian called it “the most terrifying and honest portrayal of nuclear war ever filmed.” Directed by Mick Jackson (THE BODYGUARD, TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE) from a screenplay by novelist/playwright Barry Hines (Ken Loach’s KES) and nominated for seven BAFTA Awards.
