Post-rock icons Mogwai are set to screen their acclaimed documentary, “If The Stars Had Sound” on three separate dates this month.

After a celebrated premiere at the 2024 SXSW Film Festival, “If The Stars Had Sound,” the documentary by Antony Crook about highly influential Scottish post-rock group Mogwai, has earned three exclusive screenings in the UK in June 2024.

What’s more, all three screenings will see director Antony Crook on hand to either undertake a post-film Q&A with audience members or in the case of one of the two screenings in Glasgow, introduce the film itself.
