The Brighton Palace Pier, commonly known as Brighton Pier or the Palace Pier, is a Grade II listed pleasure pier in the East Sussex town of Brighton. It is located in the city centre opposite the Old Steine. Opening in 1899, it was the third pier to be constructed in Brighton after the Royal Suspension Chain Pier and the West Pier, but is now the only one still in operation.
The Palace Pier was intended as a replacement for the Chain Pier, which collapsed in 1896 during construction of the new pier. It quickly became popular, and had become a frequently visited theatre and entertainment venue by 1911. Aside from closures owing to war, it continued to hold regular entertainment up to the 1970s. The theatre was damaged in 1973 and following a buy out was demolished in 1986, changing the piers character from seaside entertainment to an amusement park, with various fairground rides and roller coasters.
The pier remains very popular with the public, with over four million visitors a year, and has been featured in many works of British culture, including the gangster thriller Brighton Rock, the comedy Carry On at Your Convenience and the rock group The Who staged their concept album and film Quadrophenia at the East Sussex location.
The film Quadrophenia rekindled many memories for people who were involved in the mods and rockers rivalry of the 1960 period. The film was loosely based on The Who's 1973 rock opera of the same name. It was directed by Franc Roddam in his feature directing debut. Unlike the adaptation of Tommy, Quadrophenia is not a musical film, and the band does not appear live in the film.
The film stars Phil Daniels as Jimmy, a young 1960s London based Mod who escapes from his dead end job as a mailroom boy by dancing, partying, taking amphetamines, riding his scooter and brawling with the motorcycle riding Rockers. After he and his friends participate in a huge brawl with the Rockers at the seaside town of Brighton, he is arrested and his life starts to spiral out of control; he loses his love interest, gets kicked out of his house by his parents, and discovers that his idol, the popular mod nicknamed Ace Face, played by the musician Sting, is actually a down trodden bell boy at a local Brighton hotel.
To this day, motorcyclists still make a pilgrimage to the East Sussex town. Although the rivalry between the mods and rockers of the sixties has died out, the location still brings back memories for many.
