Following it’s successful run at cinemas this spring, Dad’s Army is available on Sky Cinema Premiere from November 2016. A significant investment from Screen Yorkshire’s Yorkshire Content Fund was integral to bringing the much-loved iconic British comedy to Yorkshire and to the big screen. The feature film shot on location in the region for seven weeks from October – December 2014. Directed by BAFTA nominated director Oliver Parker, the film brings together a stellar, award- winning British cast, including Bill Nighy, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Toby Jones, Tom Courtenay, Michael Gambon, Blake Harrison, Daniel Mays & Bill Paterson.
Dads Army filming locations:
Bridlington’s Old Town was transformed into the fictional Walmington-on-Sea while South Landing at Flamborough Head formed the backdrop for Walmington Beach.
Other locations used include Danes Dyke, Bempton, Sewerby Hall and East Riding Theatre in Beverley were all used as film locations alongside Scarborough, Leeds, North Yorkshire Moors Railway and Helmsley.
We had a wonderful experience shooting Dad’s Army in Yorkshire. Its stunning locations give the film an epic scale and the people were beyond helpful.
