In a one-off special event, The Age of Stupid is coming to Birmingham!

This phenominal film is set 50 years in the future in a world ravaged by climate change. Pete Postlethwaite plays a man looking back at archive footage from 2007 asking the question “why didn’t we save ourselves when we had the chance?” The Age of Stupid has received rave reviews and Mark Lynas has described it as “the most powerful piece of cultural discourse on climate change ever produced.”

On 15th March the film is having its “People’s Premiere” at 70 cinemas accross the UK and Birmingham’s Vue at Star City is one of them. As well as a screening of the film there’ll be guest speakers, live link-ups to the solar-powered premiere in Leicester Square and more.

We want to make sure this event is so popular that other cinemas show the film when it goes on general release on 20th March, so please book your tickets now.

“We could have saved ourselves, but we didn’t. It’s amazing. What state of mind were we in, to face extinction and simply shrug it off?” – The Archivist, The Age of Stupid
