August Film Theatre News

Aug 2012
What a jam-packed summer we have to offer you this year at Leiston Film Theatre - the only digital 3D cinema between Ipswich and Lowestoft! August is bursting with the very best in 'blockbuster' films and don't forget that our movie juniors can now use our special children's 3D glasses and booster seats, so no one misses out on all the big screen entertainment.

I am really looking forward to the return of the trouble making trio with another weird and wonderful adventure in, Ice Age 4: Continental Drift (U), showing in 3D and digital 2D, from Friday 3rd August. Manny, Diego and Sid embark upon another adventure after their continent is set adrift. Using an iceberg as a ship, they encounter sea creatures and battle pirates as they explore a new world. The children will love it!

Also showing from Friday 3rd August, a tangled web of lies leads Peter Parker on a path to his destiny in The Amazing Spider-Man (12A), showing in 3D and digital 2D. Peter Parker finds a clue that might help understand why his parents disappeared when he was young. His path puts him on collision course with the sinister Dr. Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, leaving Peter with a decision to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

There's more family fun from the creators of Despicable Me, when Dr Seuss' The Lorax (U) lands on our screen in 3D and digital 2D from Friday 10th August. A 12-year-old boy searches for the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world. Featuring the voices of Zac Efron, Taylor Swift and Danny DeVito. A great family film for the summer holidays.

One for our adult ladies now, as Magic Mike (15) comes to our screen also from Friday 10th August. Magic Mike is the most popular and successful performers in the world of male striptease! Mike's an entrepreneur who turns his talents to teaching an awkward young Protege, but what will happen to Mike's seemly perfect world full of 'women, money and good times' when he falls in love? Stars Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and Alex Pettyfer.

To round up our summer programme, we head up north to the highlands in Disney Pixar's Brave (PG), showing in 3D and digital 2D from the UK release date of Friday 17th August. Set in Scotland in a rugged and mythical time, Princess Merida is determined to make her own path in life and defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse. Another firm hit for Pixar film makers - how do they do it?

Looking ahead, a tatty and extremely crude teddy bear comes to our screen in the form of the adult comedy Ted (15), from Friday 31st August, but more about this next time!
