New Year, New Documentaries

In the new year The Dukes has a series of documentaries lined up for your enjoyment. Here's news of the first three . . . 


A behind the scenes documentary about Steve McQueen’s car racing drama Le Mans, launches the 2016 season of DukesDocs at the Lancaster cinema.

Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans(15) is screened on January 14, 2016 at The Dukes and tells the story of a project which the Hollywood star had been dreaming of for a decade.

At the time Le Mans went into production, McQueen was one of cinema’s biggest stars but as work on the film got underway, his dream project quickly turned into a nightmare.
