BIG screen entertainment continues to take centre stage at Lowestoft's Marina Theatre this week with Harry Potter's latest adventure.

The Half Blood Prince (12A) follows Harry's sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft, as he finds that - with Lord Voldemort tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds - it is no longer the safe haven it was.

BIG screen entertainment continues to take centre stage at Lowestoft's Marina Theatre this week with Harry Potter's latest adventure.

The Half Blood Prince (12A) follows Harry's sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft, as he finds that - with Lord Voldemort tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds - it is no longer the safe haven it was.

The film runs daily at 2.30pm and 7.30pm until Thursday.

Over the coming weeks, top films continue to grace the theatre's big screen as family adventure Aliens in the Attic (PG), comedy The Proposal (12A), family adventure Land Of The Lost (12A), comedy G Force (PG) and thriller The Taking Of Pelham 123 (15) are all shown.

Admission is £3.50 for adults and £2.50 for children and over 60s.

Live entertainment returns on Friday, September 4 with The Best Of British Variety Show 2009. Following the sell out success of last years' performances, the show is back with six top acts from the world of variety.

Joining last years' favourites Cannon & Ball will be Tom O'Connor, Bucks Fizz, Norman Collier, Faith Brown, Roger De Courcey and Nookie Bear.

A special Lowestoft In Wartime Slide Show takes place on Saturday, September 5 as the venue commences a short season commemorating the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of the second world war.

Other highlights include the BBC Big Band presenting a Wartime Gala, a matinee of popular variety show We'll Meet Again and a specially commissioned show Wish Me Luck.

Also live on stage in September is Dave Gorman. This tour will see the intrepid comedian covering the extremes of the British mainland as he travels by pushbike from this land's southernmost point to its northernmost tip, taking in the most easterly and westerly points along the way.

Pam Ayres then returns to the Marina late in the month with her current show which includes material from her best-selling books, Surgically Enhanced, With These Hands, and The Works, along with some new poems and stories.

For more information call the Marina Box Office on 01502 533200.
