It's been awhile, but SHINE A LIGHT IS BACK Y'ALL!!!!

Rebooted....I'm starting with the new film night at The Duke of York's...DUKE'S AFTER DARK!
Over the past year there has been rumblings and churnings in the world of late night cinema and as result the screenings of THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE, JURASSIC PARK, THE LOST BOYS and JAWS have been huge successes drawing large, lively and enthusiastic crowds to the Duke's for some late night cinematic goodness. Now all these nights are tarnished with same brush...DUKE'S AFTER DARK. This is going to be a bi-monthly night, screening classic and cult cinema, also showing random short movies, music vids and other cinema experiments!

Watching a film is a very personal experience, it's between you and the sensual outpour that breaches the screen. It can make you feel weird, scared, enthralled, confused and engaged. Hopefully it will leave you feeling encouraged, motivated, a bit disturbed and plain satisfied. Whilst this is a personal response, these things are always enhanced by the shared communal experience, whether that be with your friends, your lover or some weird dude sitting next to you. When we're watching a good film together, we can go on a personal experience and simultaneously a shared one. When a good audience watches a great film....awesome vibes are created and it's something worth cherishing.

This is something we want to bring forward and celebrate with DUKE'S AFTER DARK!

We going to bring you those classic film's you've always wanted to see in the big dark room, and those classics you've just never got round to seeing.

Stay with us because ALIENS will be next in late September...


And keep checking the Duke of York's website for consistent quality cinema:
