The San Miguel Picturehouse Pop-Up Comes To Brighton!

The San Miguel Picturehouse Pop-Up is heading to Brighton this summer with a series of outdoor screenings at Preston Manor.

We’re taking the Duke of Yorks and Dukes at Komedia outdoors to the grand setting of the gardens of Preston Manor in Preston Park.. Arrive early to enjoy the last of the evening sun with something special from our pop-up bar. (Doors open at 7.00. Films start around 9.15, or as soon as it gets dark).

The screenings take place in the open, with a limited number of deckchairs available on a first come first served basis. We will also have cardboard ‘bumbox’ seating available for sale but feel free to bring along small picnic chairs – however these must be placed towards the rear of the cinema area.

This is a licensed event, so we cannot accept any alcohol brought in from outside, however a bar will be open for beer and wine sales. You are welcome to bring a picnic!

Eyes Wide Open Cinema showcases a varied programme of queer cinema, both old and new, with a firm belief in the radical potential of cinematic representations that challenge status quos, resist hegemony, and subvert established norms.
