The 2002 film 24 Hour Party People (see 2002 in film), is an allegedly fact-based satire about Factory Records' people and bands, and the infamous, often unsubstantiated anecdotes and stories surrounding them.
"The Haçienda" was a world-famous nightclub that was started as a Factory Records venture. It became a cultural hub in Manchester as the center of the emerging techno and acid house genres in the late eighties and early nineties. It closed in 1997, and has since been knocked down to make way for city centre apartments.
