Ipswich Film Theatre Re-opens this Thursday

Independent Cinema is back in Ipswich!

The Ipswich Film Theatre re-opens on Thursday May 20 at 7.30pm.

The opening films are in Screen One:: Colin Firth in A Single Man (12A) - the film that netted Colin a BAFTA award and an Oscar nomination and in Screen Two: the beautifully photographed Seraphine, a French language film, which won seven Cesars at last year’s French film awards. It tells the true story of a cleaner who is discovered, on the eve of World War One, to be one of France’s most talented artists.

The following week we have Stephen Poliakoff’s all-star war-time thriller Glorious ‘39 with Romola Garai, Bill Nighy, Julie Christie, David Tennett, Jeremy Northam and in Screen Two, Andrea Arnold’s award-winning Fish Tank, an unflinching look at life in some of our council estates. It’s serious stuff but like life is balanced with humour and hope.

If you want to keep up-to-date with films and events at the IFT, we are delighted to announce the arrival of our website which can be found at

The full monthly programme is available online as well as blogs and other information. Each film in our programme has its own page with a plot synopsis, pictures and a trailer, which will hopefully whet yourt appetite for the upcoming films. Remember to clear space in your diary to see as many as you can.

For those who prefer something solid, the much-loved monthly brochure makes a return and will be available from the foyer and from various venues like tourist information centres, The New Wolsey, The Mercury Theatre, Colchester, DanceEast and the EADT.

As you will know the IFT is run by volunteers, the same of true of online and brochure design services, so a huge thank you to our designer Chris Plowman who came up with our fantastic website and brochure design (struggling against a last-minute server crash). Give the website a visit and see what is coming up.

Finally, we will be on Stephen Foster’s Drive Time show on BBC Radio Suffolk on Wednesday after 4pm.

See you at the movies!
