April Film Theatre News

Apr 2014

It's been a good news time here at Leiston Film Theatre. Our centenary celebrations are well and truly under way - and proving very popular, with many more great events and promotions yet to come, including a FREE open air cinema in the park on Saturday 30th August, but more about this coming months.

We were also very pleased to be voted one of the top 50 places to visit in Suffolk – I like to think it’s due to my good looks, but Hannah tells me it’s probably because of the experience we offer as one of the best independent cinemas in the country. She may have a point there!

Easter is almost upon us and we have a great line up of big screen family entertainment during the school holidays. The Lego Movie (U) plays for 3 days only on Tuesday 8th, Wednesday 9th and Thursday 10th April in 3D and 2D. In this smash-hit film, an ordinary LEGO mini-figure is mistakenly thought to be an extraordinary master builder and is consequently recruited to embark on an epic journey to stop an evil tyrant, who is determined to destroy the LEGO universe! We are offering a 2-for-1 ticket offer for both these terrific films, with a voucher, which is available from the Film Theatre box office (while stocks last).

Our BIG film for the Easter holidays is the big screen return of those adorable Muppets in Muppets Most Wanted (U), which is on screen from Friday 11th April. In this latest outing, the Muppets find themselves wrapped into a European jewel-heist caper headed by a Kermit the Frog look-alike and his dastardly sidekick. Huge helpings of family fun to help those holidays along!

Our very own Cheeky the Centenary Chimp has been really busy opening playgroups, visiting schools and generally creating mischief wherever he goes. His Cheeky Club is proving very popular with his younger fans, with many money saving offers ahead, exclusively for the club members. You can catch his antics on You Tube by searching for Cheeky’s Antics at Leiston Film Theatre and you can also come along a meet him and the Easter Bunny at the Sizewell Sports and Social Club on Easter Sunday 20th April for a FREE Easter Egg hunt to find 100 hidden tokens (100 tokens for 100 years), with an Easter Egg for everyone who discovers one of the tokens. The hunt starts at 11.00am and registration opens at 10.00am.

We really do have so much happening at Leiston Film Theatre, they’re simply isn’t enough room to tell you about all the great films and superb live shows coming up at Suffolk’s oldest cinema, so please do pick up a programme, or visit our brilliant website for full programme information, especially during our magnificent centenary celebrations throughout 2014.

Join us next month as we unveil our new premier seating and authentic cuddle seats, plus I have some exciting news for you all, but more about all this next time.

We look forward to welcoming you along to Leiston Film Theatre soon.

Wayne Burns.
