March Film Theatre News

Feb 2011

We start this month with a welcome announcement. We am able to confirm that Leiston Film Theatre will be playing host to another fun-filled traditional family pantomime in January 2012. Join Leiston's Bright Sparks between the 13th and 15th January, as they present Jack and the Beanstalk, with a giant sized helping full of fun, laughter and the biggest beanstalk in pantoland! Tickets are now on sale, with a discount of 1.00 off all tickets for a limited time.

We have a bizarre mix of films in March, from ballet and boxing, to western and aliens! There has to be something for everyone with the following films and for those who missed it, we will be screening the multi-award winning The Kings Speech (12A) for 4 selected evenings from 1st April.

Nominated for 7 Academy Awards, The Fighter (15) is based on the incredible true story of boxer "Irish" Micky Ward's unlikely road to the world light welterweight title. His Rocky-like rise was shepherded by half-brother Dicky, a boxer-turned-trainer who rebounded in life after nearly being KO'd by drugs and crime.

We reckon John Wayne would approve of the remake of his 1969 film. True Grit (15) stars Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon and follows a 14-year-old farm girl, who sets out to capture her father's killer. To aid her, she hires and insists on accompanying the toughest U.S. Marshal she can find, whose drinking, sloth, and generally reprobate character do not increase her faith in him. Against his wishes, she joins him in his trek into the Indian Nations in search of the murderer.

Paul (15) is a comedy adventure, starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, as a pair of sci-fi geeks, who venture into America's UFO heartland and accidentally meet an escaped alien named Paul, who takes them on an insane road trip that alters their universe forever. Chased by federal agents, the trio hatch a fumbling escape plan to return Paul to his mother ship!

Anyone who enjoyed our hilarious pantomime voyage to Treasure Island in January will have noticed the hugely talented Tom Horton providing the live musical accompaniment during the show. Well, we are looking forward to welcoming Tom back to the Film Theatre on Sunday 13th March, for a special fund raising matinee concert, in aid of our hard working Leiston Film Theatre Support Club. Tickets are now available from our box office on 01728 830549, priced 7.50. Please show your support if you can and enjoy an afternoon of fine entertainment from this respected Suffolk organist.

Our Easter programme promises the best in big screen family entertainment, including Yogi Bear 3D (U), Gnomeo and Juliet 3D (U) and Hop (PG). Visit our 'On Screen' page for film dates and times and to watch the trailers.
