November Film Theatre News

Oct 2011

What a fantastic half term we're having at Leiston Film Theatre and our November programme will keep us nice and busy, with a packed diary of films and shows to suit all tastes, many of which are only showing for a few days, so please check details carefully.

On screen from Friday 28th October is the wonderful family film Dolphin Tale (U), which is inspired by the true story of an injured dolphin and its special relationship with a boy, who encourages others to help his aquatic friend to swim again. A genuine 'feel-good' trip to the cinema and showing until Thursday 3rd November.

Hannah is very excited about The Lion King 3D (U), which is back on the big screen for 3 days only from Friday 4th November. A young lion prince is born, thus making his uncle Scar the second in line to the throne. Scar plots with the hyenas to kill King Mufasa and Prince Simba, thus making himself King. The King is killed and Simba is led to believe that it was his fault, and so flees the kingdom in shame. After years of exile he is persuaded to return home to overthrow Scar and claim the kingdom as his own. Simply a 'must-see' family event and so much better up on the big screen.

Jane Eyre (PG) also plays for 3 selected days from Monday 7th November. After a bleak childhood, Jane Eyre goes out into the world to become a governess. As she lives happily in her new position at Thornfield Hall, she meets the dark, cold, and abrupt master of the house, Mr. Rochester. Jane and her employer grow close in friendship and she soon finds herself falling in love with him.

The annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance will be held at the Film Theatre on Wednesday 9th November at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced 6.00 each and are available from the box office on 01728 830549. All proceeds will be donated to this extremely worthwhile cause.

The outrageous, yet massive Inbetweeners Movie (15) returns to our screen for 3 selected days from Friday 11th November and sees Will, Simon, Jay and Neil leaving school forever and off on their first lads' holiday. They've got two weeks in Malia with no parents, no teachers, no money, and little chance with the ladies!

Live show fans can look forward to a fantastic evening of entertainment on Saturday 12th November, in aid of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, when Peter Antony (Brother Lees) presents a swinging, laugh-a-minute variety show, starring Suffolk multi-instrumentalist Leo Shavers, complete with a superb 6 piece band. Tickets are priced 10.50 and 8.50 for concessions and are now available from our box office.

The much anticipated movie event The Help (12A) plays for 7 days from Friday 18th November, with a matinee on Sunday 20th and Wednesday 23rd November. Set in Mississippi during the 1960s, a southern society girl returns from college determined to become a writer, but turns her friends' lives, and a Mississippi town, upside down when she decides to interview the black women who have spent their lives taking care of prominent southern families.

Finally, limited tickets for The Burns Collection Revisited, on Wednesday 16th November are still available from the box office. The programme will include images of the Aldeburgh floods, Wartime bombings, Aldeburgh Lifeboats and the Aldeburgh Railway, amongst umpteen other subjects of local interest. Tickets are priced 8.50, with all proceeds being donated to our hard working Film Theatre Support Club.

As always, please take a tour around our website for our current programme details and online bookings.
