Music Box Films presents Beats — a universal story of friendship, rebellion, and the irresistible power of music.
Set against the backdrop of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act of 1994, which banned unlicensed raves across the UK, Beats follows best friends and polar opposites Johnno and Spanner who, realizing they are destined for different futures, sneak out to an illegal party in pursuit of one last crazy night together.

A portion of every ticket purchased goes directly towards supporting Orange County’s only nonprofit Art-house theater.
