Thanks for sharing, Brighton Pier I believe.....was this not Clive's and John Hayward’s arcade, slightly earlier (1973) than the video in the below thread from the early '80s.....

I watched it when it was on. Looking at all the mutoscopes I thought "Ah, Mr Haywood!"
Interestingly the spill chucker on here doesn't know what a mutoscope is.

Some really nice footage there, although perhaps a little confused. The brief arcade scenes are certainly not 1973 - John and Clive were on the pier from 1980 - 85

Yes, good old program editing, they show two ladies afterwards outside the Theatre from 1973, which I guess was still one then as there are lots of flyers advertising performers. The two punch bags look from a different period as well...
