Abbeygate Cinema, Bury St Edmunds
Thursday 14 July, 7pm
Often considered the world’s greatest living explorer, Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE has circumnavigated the globe from pole to pole, crossed the Antarctic on foot, broken countless world records and even discovered a lost city in Arabia. He once had to cut off his own frostbitten fingers and, at 60, ran seven marathons, on seven consecutive days, on seven continents after a double heart bypass. But, who really is the man who prefers to be known just as ‘Ran’? Featuring footage from his many expeditions, this insightful film peels back the layers behind the explorer’s incredible story, using contributions from lifelong friends and colleagues to paint a tender portrait of the man behind the myth. Tickets: £14 (adult), £13 (concessions), £11 (student), £8.50 (child)

From Friday 22 July
Abandoned by her parents and siblings, Kya Clark (Daisy Edgar-Jones) is forced to spend her childhood alone in the marshes of North Carolina. She learns to become self-sufficient, trading mussels and smoked fish for money and gas and finding joy in nature and her collection of shells and feathers. Mysterious and wild, Kya finds some loyal friends among the townspeople of Barkley Cove but is mistrusted by others, and when local celebrity Chase Andrews (Harris Dickinson) is found murdered she becomes the prime suspect. This beautiful and thought-provoking adaptation of Delia Owens’ award-winning novel draws parallels between human and animal behaviour in a story of love, loss, prejudice, resilience and strength.
Tickets: £9.99 (adult), £7.99 (student/senior), £5.99 (child)
Cineworld Bury St Edmunds

Loosely based on real events, this romantic drama tells
the story behind the construction of Paris’ iconic landmark. When engineer Gustave Eiffel (Romain Duris) is asked by the French government to design something spectacular for the 1889 Paris World Fair, he is reluctant and instead wants to focus on his work for the city’s metro. An encounter with Adrienne Bourgès (Emma Mackey), a mysterious woman from his past, changes his mind and persuades him to take on the challenge of creating the tallest building in the world.
Tickets: £9.99 (adult), £7.99 (student/senior), £5.99 (child)

Thursday 28 July, 7:30pm
Formed in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales in 2001, the Spooky Men’s Chorale has been keeping audiences entertained for 20 years with their captivating and slightly disturbing renditions of Georgian table songs and popular ballads, as well as their own original material. The group has released six CDs, toured the UK eight times and performed at numerous festivals. As the years have passed, their repertoire has evolved to offer fresher, deeper and more ludicrous perspectives, as evidenced in the content of their latest album Welcome to the second half.
As one reviewer said: “As thunderous as a herd of wildebeest, as sly as a wagonload of Spike Milligans and as sonorous as a cloister of monks, the Spooky Men’s Chorale are the gift that keeps on giving.” Tickets: £26.50 (general admission), £14 (16-25), £8.50 (under 16s)
