Hollywood legend Marlon Brando's 100th birthday celebrated at Yorkshire cinema

A Bradford cinema will re-open this month with a centenary celebration of one of the greatest Hollywood legends.

The Cubby Broccoli cinema, at the city’s National Science and Media Museum, has been closed for a year as part of a wider refurbishment.

But from this month, film buffs can enjoy classic Marlon Brando movies including The Godfather, Guys and Dolls, and Apocolypse now.

Brando, who died in 2004, would have turned 100 in April this year.

The programme also includes a season of classic long, hot summer films including Call Me By Your Name, Dirty Dancing, and The Birdcage.

Patrons attending the cinema are asked to enter from the back of the museum next to Sharpe Street car park.

A second cinema at the Museum, the Pictureville, which contains an IMAX screen, remains closed due to ongoing RAAC remediation works.

The Museum is also closed to visitors as it undergoes a £6m gallery refurbishment described by bosses as “once in a generation,” ahead of Bradford’s City of Culture celebrations in 2025.

The Cubby Broccoli, which sits 100 film viewers, is named after Albert Broccoli, the producer of many James Bond films.

Full listings are available on the cinema’s website.
