October Film Theatre News

Sep 2012

There's so much happening at Leiston Film Theatre in October, we just don't have enough room to tell you all about it, so why not 'LIKE US' on Facebook to get the very latest news from Leiston Film Theatre.

So let's get started! Anna Karenina (12A) opens our October program, starring Keira Knightley and Jude Law. This wonderful film, set in the late 19th century Russia, tells the tale of an aristocrat of high-society, who enters into a life-changing affair with the affluent Count Vronsky! Showing on our screen from Friday 5th October, with a matinee on Wednesday 10th October.

Flying Squad detectives Jack Regan and George Carter make their big screen debut in The Sweeney (15), showing from Friday 12th October, with a matinee on Wednesday 17th October. While under scrutiny from Internal Affairs for their unorthodox methods, the maverick pair investigates a combined robbery and homicide. Inquires turn up familiar felon, but their suspect has the perfect alibi.

Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones star in Hope Springs (12A), on screen on Friday 19th October, with a matinee on Wednesday 24th October. After thirty years of declining marriage, a middle-ages couple attend an intense, week-long counseling session to work on their relationship and understand how they have emotionally drifted apart and what they can do to reignite their passion. An enjoyable romantic comedy/drama.

So that leaves us with the BIG film for October! Daniel Craig returns as James Bond 007 in Skyfall (12A) showing from UK release date of Friday 26th October. This time Bond's loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her and when MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost! Book your tickets from 1st October and don't miss Bond back on the BIG screen screen. We can't wait!

October half term is almost upon us and we have a number of money saving offers during the school holidays. Firstly, to celebrate our 28th anniversary on Saturday 27th October, we are presenting a family matinee of Ice Age 4: Continental Drift (U) at 12 noon and Disney/Pixar's Brave (PG) at 2.00pm, with all seats priced at only 98p! That's right, ONLY 98p. Seats ,ay be booked in advance on 01728 830549, or via the Leiston Film Theatre Website at:

And there's more! The celebrations continue, with a half term 2-for-1 3D ticket off (with voucher) for the Halloween family film, ParaNorman 3D and 2D (PG) for five days only from Monday 29th October until Friday 2nd November and showing in 2D on Monday 29th October only. Norman isn't your average 11-year-old boy. Not only is he obsessed with spooks, but he talks to them too! It's a strange gift, but young Norman prefers the company of the dead to that of his family. Norman's talent is called upon when his town, which was once the site of a witch hunt, is about to be taken over by spooky zombies! Vouchers are now available from our box office (while stocks last), or via our Leiston Film Theatre Facebook page.

Right, that's all from us for now. I'm now off to buy 28 candles for our birthday cake! It's incredible to think that we are just 15 months away from celebrating our magnificent centenary and we are already planning a year of very special events to mark this milestone.
