Scottish rave drama Beats screened in advance for Cineworld Unlimited members last night. Director Brian Welsh fashions a nostalgic and entertaining two of two teenage friends at a crossroads in their lives, who embark on the biggest illegal rave part of their lives.
So what did Unlimited members make of it? We'll start with this from Shane Minham who, unsurprisingly, lauds the soundtrack.

The Film Grump says it bears comparison with a certain George Lucas classic...
Leanne says one needn't be familiar with the music in order to enjoy the movie.
#Beatsfilm #beats #CineworldUnlimited cant help but feeling another moment in time is captured like the recent #EighthGrade and #mid90s. Despite being based around rave culture, it tells a universal tale of friendship and the feeling of freedom you feel as a teen. 8.5/10— Leanne (@Leanneiscoolyeh) May 8, 2019
Chris P Tee Magician says Welsh brings a great deal of authenticity and detail to the movie.
#beatsfilm is a real flashback. Just loved the characters and the soundtrack. The movie was very authentic and the Trippy Visuals during the E scene was spot on. Thanks #CineworldYate #cineworldunlimited for a pre release Screening. Shout out to the cast and crew. You nailed it.— Chris P Tee Magician (@chrisptee) May 8, 2019
And Allan praises it as an across-the-board triumph.
