Television audiences in 1984 were blown away by Threads, a haunting and terrifying look at the impact of nuclear war on a city called Sheffield. Shot on location in and around Sheff, including the Nottingham House pub, we're excited to bring it to the big screen. Ruth and Jimmy make plans to move in together when Ruth falls pregnant, oblivious to the ominous news developments of an impending geopolitical crisis in Iran. As panic increases, Sheffielders stock up on supplies and attempt to flee to the safety of the countryside. When a nuclear bomb explodes above the city, thousands are killed instantly - and they're the lucky ones. Visceral, haunting, disturbing and bold, this is an unforgettable experience and scarier than any horror film. "They've done it. Jesus Christ, they've done it.
