100 years, 100 film clips at Duke of Yorks

Do you have any old memories of the Duke of York's cinema? Or maybe you've picked up some old memorabilia over the years?

During 2010, the Duke of York's 100 Community Archive Project led by CINECITY is looking to amass 100 sound or film clip memories. That's one for each of the 100 year's of the cinema's operation.

The Duke of York's is one of the oldest working cinemas in the country and the aim is to build up a physical archive of social snapshots from across the past century with ticket stubs, film posters, press clippings and old photographs.

The hunt starts on 18th March 2010
The hunt starts on 18th March at the Jubilee Library with an evening of 'Show and Tell'. Anyone interested in sharing their memories about the Duke of York's, or in becoming a volunteer on the project, should come along. The evening starts at 5.30 in Conference Room 2.

There will be further community meetings through March, April and May.

Special screenings continue throughout March
The Duke's year of special screenings commemorating its 100th anniverary also continues throughout March:
  • March 21st - B Double Movie Bill screening of TO THE PUBLIC DANGER and WIDE BOY
