Pink Floyd: The Wall (1982) 40th Anniversary presented by Three Lords & Byron Theatre

Join us in celebrating the 40th anniversary of the film adaptation of Pink Floyd: The Wall, arguably the world’s biggest band ever.

Presented in 2K resolution.

“A confined but troubled rock star descends into madness in the midst of his physical and social isolation from everyone.”

Based on the 1979 Pink Floyd album, The Wall, this live-action/animated psychological horror musical film was directed by Alan Parker in 1982. Like the album, the film is highly metaphorical, and symbolic imagery and sound are present most commonly. The film is mostly driven by music and features little dialogue from the characters. Despite its turbulent production and the creators voicing their discontent about the final product, the film received generally positive reviews and has an established cult following.

Earning two British Academy Awards: Best Sound and Best Original Song, film critic Roger Ebert reviewed The Wall on the television programme At The Movies in 1982, describing it as “a stunning vision of self-destruction” and “one of the most horrifying musicals of all time … but the movie is effective. The music is strong and true, the images are like sledge hammers, and for once, the rock and roll hero isn’t just a spoiled narcissist, but a real, suffering image of all the despair of this nuclear age. This is a really good movie.”

“Superb, clever and highly entertaining.”   IMBD

What the hell did I just watch? But you certainly will never forget it and never get tired of it.”  Medium.com

The Wall is one of the best albums/movies ever done”  IMBD

This film will forever be culturally relevant, and as the ongoing effects of recent worldwide events continue to change us, perhaps a wall or two does need to ‘come down’.Hano Kotevski (Three Lords)
