The Music Room of Brighton’s royal pleasure palace is turned into a picturehouse for Kubrick’s Oscar-winning adaptation of Thackeray’s literary classic. The splendour of the Pavilion makes a particularly fitting backdrop for this breathtaking epic following the picaresque adventures of its roguish hero as he cuts a swathe through 18th century society.

One of the most beautiful films ever shot, the reputation of Kubrick’s audacious and fascinating work has steadily grown; though not an immediate commercial or critical success on its release it is now justifiably rated among the all-time greats.

The Pavilion’s Music Room was where George IV’s own band used to entertain guests with Handel or Italian opera. While Handel’s stately Sarabande is the piece of music most associated with BARRY LYNDON, the soundtrack as a whole reflects Kubrick’s passion for classical music and features works by  Johann Sebastian Bach, Vivaldi, Giovanni Paisiello, Mozart and Schubert.

Starring: Ryan O'Neal, Marisa Berenson, Patrick Magee, Hardy Krüger, Steven Berkoff

Produced in: UK 1975
