Brighton is well known as the place to be in the United Kingdom for artists and the artistically inclined breed of tourist, or even just anyone who hopes to learn more about the culture of Britain’s contemporary aesthetes. The Duke of York Picture House is one establishment that has granted Brighton this wonderful reputation, and rightly so.
One of the world’s foremost art house theatres, the Duke of York’s Picture House is a single screen cinema that seats 300 and plays obscure films, both classic and contemporary, that would never have a chance to be seen in the corporate megaplexes. Many of the most famous art house films of the last century have made their British debuts here, and this tradition shows no signs of stopping. It’s practically guaranteed that any show you attend at the Duke of York’s Picture House will be a unique and noteworthy experience. As a grade II listed building, it has protection from demolition, and as such, will continue serving Brighton locals and interested tourists for years to come.
