Griffith Film Theater at Bryan Center

Opened also as the Quadrangle Theatre which was located on the West Campus section of Duke University. In 1982,The Joesph M. and Kathleen Bryan Center opened it doors to the public and the students and facility of Duke University. The Bryan Center was an amazing display of architecture when it opened in the early-1980’s.

The Center(designed not only for the public view but also to the students and facility and alumni of Duke University)contains a University Convenient Store with an Information Student Center, A Student and a Gothic Bookstore and Speciality Shop, five area eating establishments located inside the center(that also included a McDonald’s), and several performing arts centers. Inside also was a student copy center not to mention a branch of the United States Postal Service dedicated to the students and facility.

The Griffith Film Theater,located on the second level of the Bryan Center is regularly opened during the fall and spring semesters and during summer sessions that showcases feature films and cult movies that not only showed to the public, but also to the students and facility as well. It’s very small in size, but its a great place to see a good movie at great discount prices. This is also a great place to see some cult movies that are shown here too during the Griffith Theatre’s midnight screenings. The cinema also showcases premiere enagements of specially selected films from the world over that sometimes make their North American premieres here. The theatre is opened on certain days, and operates during weeknights and weekends, but the showings are on a nightly basis and the late shows are mostly on Friday and Saturday evenings only. A great place to see a movie that is one of the best in Durham and on the campus of Duke University.

Basically,anything goes at this theatre…..they’ll show anything!!!

First-run features, second run features, exclusives, and cult films.

Independent films and foreign features are the speciality of the house.

I got to see “Last Tango In Paris” and “Fritz The Cat”,during a double feature midnight screening here at the Griffith,in its original “X-rated” format.
