Back Row Brighton

Cinema-going in Brighton & Hove

price: £11.99
Author(s)Amy Riley, Martin Payne and Frank Flood.

Back Row Brighton transports us back to the heyday of cinema-going in the company of those who were there. Alongside evocative archive photographs, names such as the Astoria, the Granada, the Continentale and the Regency are recalled in touching and humorous stories of romance, excitement, grandeur and, occasionally, fleas. Some of these recollections are drawn from QueenSpark's rich archive, others are the recorded reminiscenses of elders of the city asked to recall cinema-going in Brighton & Hove in the 1930s and 1960s.
