Lowestoft Marina Theatre hosts film season

PUBLISHED: 12:20 28 January 2011

LOWESTOFT’S Marina Theatre continues its winter film season with the screening of a hard-hitting drama, comedy and mobster hit.

On Monday Keira Knightley, Colin Farrell, Anna Friel and Ray Winstone star in the hard-hitting London Boulevard (18).

The film, which screens at 7.30pm, follows the story of a man who finds himself in a duel with a vicious gangster after falling in love with a reclusive young movie star.

At 2.30pm and 7.30pm on Tuesday, British filmmaker Mike Leigh delivers another emotionally honest portrait of ordinary people trying to make sense of their lives in comedy drama Another Year (12A).

Jim Broadbent and Imelda Staunton star as a married couple who have managed to remain blissfully happy into their autumn years. But over the course of one average year they are surrounded by friends, colleagues and family who all seem to suffer some degree of unhappiness.

Comedy Burke & Hare (15) screens on Wednesday at 2.30 and 7.30pm.

Simon Pegg, Andy Serkis and Christopher Lee star in a film that follows the hapless exploits of two men as they fall into the highly profitable business of providing cadavers for the medical fraternity in 19th century Edinburgh.

Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie star in The Tourist (12A), which screens at 2.30 and 7.30pm on Thursday.

Elise, played by Jolie, randomly sits next to American tourist Frank (Depp), on a train journey to Venice. However, Elise is using Frank as a decoy to distract the police who have been following her for over two years waiting for her to contact her lover who embezzled over $2 billion from a mobster.

Frank and Elise must evade the police, and also the mobster whose money was stolen.

Other films set to be screened as part of the Marina’s film season include The King’s Speech, Black Swan and The Fighter.

Tickets are £4 for adults, with children and over 60s £3 each. They can be bought on the door or in advance, call 01502 533200.
