BHOD 13 - Duke of York’s Cinema

Book Here

Description - Visit Britain's longest surviving cinema, the Duke of York's, for a tour of this iconic landmark. The Duke opened its doors on 22 September 1910. After welcoming millions of audience members, witnessing many changes of ownership and surviving numerous threats to its existence and even possible demolition, it was re-born in the early 1980s as an arthouse cinema. It is now part of the City Screen chain of Picturehouse cinemas and a protected Grade II listed building - Brighton's favourite cinema and the country's most enduring picture house. Nick Cave says, "The Duke's is one of Britain's truly great independent cinemas. The jewel in the crown of Brighton. I love it".
