The Birds

The Birds
  • 1963
  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Alfred Hitchcock
  • Cast: Rod Taylor, Jessica Tandy, Suzanne Pleshette, Tippi Hedren

Brilliant macabre idea from a Du Maurier tale to have our winged friends turned into malevolent killers. This is Hitch at his most mischevious. Oh and for the amateur psychologists among you, there is a glacial blonde leading lady and she is mistreated.

Gloria Bell

Gloria Bell
  • 2018
  • Chile / US
  • 1h 42min
  • Directed by: Sebastián Lelio
  • Cast: Sean Astin, Julianne Moore, Alanna Ubach

Gloria (Moore) is a lovelorn independent woman in her 50s, seeking out new romance in the Los Angeles nightlife scene. Lelio, reworking his award-winning 2013 breakthrough, has an ideal lead in Moore but there are some strained touches; nevertheless, Moore gives one of her most sympathetic performances. Sensitive and rousing.

Sometimes Always Never

Sometimes Always Never
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 31min
  • Directed by: Carl Hunter
  • Cast: Bill Nighy, Jenny Agutter, Alice Lowe

Alan (Nighy) is a fastidious widower who joins his son Peter (Riley) at the seaside on family business. Fine performances, including an ever-excellent one from Nighy, can’t quite breathe life into Hunter’s Wes Anderson-ish mannerisms, in this gently melancholic but too studied comedy drama.

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.
