24 Hour Party People

24 Hour Party People Manchester 1976: Cambridge educated Tony Wilson (Steve coogan), Granada TV presenter, is at a Sex Pistols gig. Totally inspired by this pivotal moment in music history, he and his friends set up a record label, Factory Records, singing first Joy Division (who go on to become New Order) then James and the Happy Mondays, who all become seminal artists of their time.

What ensues is a tale of music, sex, drugs, larger than life characters, and the birth of one of the most famous dance clubs in the world, The Hacienda — a mecca for clubbers as famous as the likes of Studio 54.

Graphically depicting the music and dance heritage of Manchester from the late 70s to the early 90s, this comedy documents the vibrancy that made Mad-chester the place in the world that you would most like to be.
