Above and Beyond - Acoustic: Giving up the Day Job

Concert documentary of the renowned electronic band performing acoustically

In 2016, Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamäki (aka Above & Beyond, one of the world’s most successful dance acts), left the electronic music world behind.

This new concert documentary follows the Grammy-nominated group’s unlikely journey from the DJ booth and Abbey Road Studios to London’s Royal Albert Hall, the Sydney Opera House and finally the Hollywood Bowl, where they were joined by a 34-piece orchestra.

The film offers an intimate, behind-the-scenes glimpse of one of the world’s biggest dance acts as they risk it all to go acoustic.

Directors: Paul Dugdale, Myles Desenberg. (UK/US 2017) 99 min.


Adult – $11.50
Child/Senior – $8.25
