La Grande Illusion

La Grande Illusion
  • 1937
  • France
  • 1h 57min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jean Renoir
  • Written by: Jean Renoir, Charles Spaak
  • Cast: Jean Gabin, Dita Parlo, Pierre Fresnay, Erich von Stroheim

Renoir's classic prison camp escape story is more than the strong anti-war statement that won it praise at the time of its release; it is also an ironic social analysis highlighting class differentiation.

The Happy Prince

The Happy Prince
  • 2018
  • Germany / Belgium / UK / Italy
  • 1h 45min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Rupert Everett
  • Cast: Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, Emily Watson

The tale of the last days of Oscar Wilde (Everett), as he lives out his post-prison existence in France and Italy. If Firth and Watson are underused as pal Reggie Turner and wife Constance, they’re well-cast, and Everett himself, in his accomplished directorial debut, is sensational as the fallen star. A surprising and courageously unflattering portrait.

McQueen

McQueen
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 51min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ian Bonhôte, Peter Ettedgui
  • Cast: Alexander McQueen

Elegant documentary on the working-class London lad who became chief designer at Givenchy, combining behind-the-scenes footage with archive comments and fresh interviews, looking at the grief caused by the loss of close friend Isabella Blow and his beloved mother. Informative, engrossing but never maudlin.

Aldeburgh Cinema has been in operation since 1919.

The auditorium was created at the rear of a High Street shop. It nearly closed in the 1960's but was saved by locals, led by Lettie Gifford, and including Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears.

It is now a registered charity, with a 1,000+ Friends support group, and is home of the Aldeburgh Documentary Film and Children's Film Festivals.
