Tickets £7, concs £6: Available from Subscription Rooms

Truffaut’s 1966 classic adaptation of the dystopian novel by Ray Bradbury portrays an oppressive future society where all reading material is banned.  The job of the firemen is not to put out fires, but to burn books, keeping the flames at a steady 451 degrees: the temperature at which paper combusts.

Fireman Montag begins to re-think his job, his marriage and his life when he meets a revolutionary book-loving girl.

Fahrenheit 451 is a film that speaks about the profound value of books to us as individuals and as a society.

This film is 112 minutes long.
