  • Fairfax House
    2015 Film Festival launched at Fairfax House (2-8 February 2015)

    In this fourth biennial festival of classic period film, Fairfax House pays homage to the days of St George's Hall, when this Georgian townhouse was better known to the people of York as a cinema and dancehall. Showcasing eleven award-winning films that evoke the golden age of filmmaking at Hollywood and Pinewood, Fairfax House returns to its early-20th century days transforming its ‘saloon’ to a cinema to bring some of the greatest names of silver screen back to the house.
