Louisa Gold (Seagrove) is a widowed Jersey shopkeeper with two sons fighting in WW2 when the Channel Islands are occupied by the Germans; she takes in an escaped Russian POW (Kostov). The look and atmosphere of 40s Jersey is well caught, but the story is predictable and it feels like a tame TV drama.

A Mars mission docks with the ISS bearing a single-celled alien organism, which then bursts out of containment. Derivative sci-fi drama which feels like a blend / rip-off of Alien and Gravity; you spend most of it wondering who’ll die next. Reasonably effective but inessential.

Leiston Film Theatre

A council owned and operated cinema, boasting a history dating back to October 1914 and the latest Dolby technology.

Leiston Film Theatre, or Leiston Picture House as it was originally named, opened in October 1914 and has traded continuously for 101 years.

Following a decline in cinema attendances in the 1970s, the venue was saved from closure in 1976 by Leiston Town Council, who have invested in carefully updating the building to meet the expectations of today's cinema audiences.

Despite being Suffolk's oldest purpose-built cinema, this versatile venue boasts a very comfortable 252-seat auditorium and features Dolby Digital 7.1 Surround EX sound and the very latest in digital projection, including the superior Dolby 3D experience.

In 2014, the venue is proudly celebrated its magnificent centenar. 2016 marks the 40 year anniversary of Leiston-cum-Sizewell Tpwn Council stepping in to save the venue from certain closure.
