Back Row Brighton

By John Riches

Back Row Brighton

From January through March 2009 QueenSpark worked with the University of Brighton to interview city elders about their experience of going to the cinema from the 1930s to 1960s.

Their oral histories were recorded and are now archived at the University of Brighton which was particulary keen to preserve stories of people visiting the Duke of York cinema in the run up to its centenary in 2010.

Some of the testimonies also feature in 'Back Row Brighton'. Above is an extract from the cover which was designed by Claude d'Avoine, Joe Luxton and Rebecca Parnell. In 2010 they were students on the University's Graphic Design Degree Course who won a competition to design the book jacket.
