The Big Sick

The Big Sick
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Michael Showalter
  • Cast: Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter, Ray Romano

Culture clash comedy written by real life couple Emily V Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani. It plays out with charming, sometimes toe-curling honesty and an acknowledgement of how complicated life can get when expectations weigh heavy and tradition unceremoniously intervenes.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 29min
  • PG
  • Directed by: David Soren
  • Cast: Kevin Hart, Thomas Middleditch, Ed Helms

Animated superhero comedy based on the bestselling book series by Dav Pilkey. This is a film that sides with the kids, right down to its sly jabs at uncaring, cash-starved school systems and loose message about the value of laughing at yourself; and, of course, at the mere existence of a planet called Uranus.

Cars 3

Cars 3
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • U
  • Directed by: Brian Fee
  • Cast: Armie Hammer, Nathan Fillion, Owen Wilson, Kerry Washington

Lightning (Wilson) is challenged by new car on the block, Jackson Storm (Hammer). The least interesting Pixar franchise rumbles on in a rudimentary cash-grab which is basically a training montage in search of a story, and Randy Newman’s score can’t save it from being a dull lunge for the finish line.

Kedi

Kedi
  • 2016
  • Turkey / US
  • 1h 19min
  • Directed by: Ceyda Torun

In Istanbul cats are considered a mirror to ourselves. This documentary uses the animals who roam the streets in their hundreds of thousands to provide a new look at the ancient city and its people.

The Seven Year Itch

The Seven Year Itch
  • 1955
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Billy Wilder
  • Cast: Marilyn Monroe, Tom Ewell, Evelyn Keys, Sonny Tufts

Disappointingly flat version (by director Wilder's standards) of George Axelrod's farcical stage play about one man's mid-life crisis. Still worth a look though for Monroe's iconic moment over the grating.

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.
