Description

One of the most quaint cinemas you're ever likely to see, The Tudor is a loving recreation of, and tribute to, the classic cinemas of a bygone era. Come and discover the cinema that inspired the name of pop band, Two Door Cinema Club. A film buff's dream, the Tudor is a 75-seat, privately-owned cinema in Comber. It was built, and continues to be run by, Noel Spence. He shares his love of film with twin brother, Roy - who also has his own, back-garden cinema, The Excelsior. Together they've been making their own films since the mid-Sixties, picking-up several amateur Oscars in the process.

Notes

Twin brothers Roy and Noel Spence have been making films for over fifty years; with subjects including crafty leprechauns, creatures from outer space, Fifties rock 'n' rollers and the undead. You can enjoy many of these fantastical creations on BFI player. This film is courtesy of Roy Spence and is held in the Irish Film Archive.
