This week, the news that BRIGHTON ROCK was getting a star studded remake got people excited. The classic film set the bar high for subsequent Brighton-set films, only reached by one other film:QUADROPHENIA. Our projectionist Jimmy, incidentally, was an extra on that film. It's a small town.
The chaps at VISIT BRIGHTON have produced a nice little guide to Brighton as a film set. Check it out here. They also produced a podcast, in which yours truly talks about the Duke of York's Picturehouse. You can listen here.
Other, lesser known films shot in Brighton: the Liam Neeson thriller UNDER SUSPICION, Kristin Scott Thomas' starrer A HANDFUL OF DUST (in which the Dukes makes a brief appearance) and Woody Allen's disastrous CASSANDRA'S DREAM.
