Brighton Festival 2020Public booking opens: Wed 19 Feb, 9am

One Brighton Festival reviewer goes to all four of our Alexanderplatz screenings!

There is no deeper or more atmospheric evocation of the German Weimar era than the German television epic Berlin Alexanderplatz so it’s entirely fitting that we have programmed it this year for Brighton Festival.

Adapted from Alfred Döblin’s novel by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, the 15-and-a-half hour mini-series has become cult viewing since its 14 episodes were first aired in 1983.

And one valiant Brighton Festival critic is determined to see all 15 hours of the show. (That’s 15 hours to you and me)

Lizzie Tobin’s final review will appear on Guide 2 Brighton at the end of the month.

The complete series is being shown in four installments across the four weekends of the Brighton Festival.

This is an unmissable opportunity to experience a television classic on the big screen and there is still a chance to see the final two installments on the 19 and 26 May at the Duke of Yorks at 11am on each of the dates.
