our pick of December events in West Suffolk
WE LOVE ANIME: LOOKING FOR MAGICAL DOREMI [TBC], Cambridge Arts Picturehouse; Saturday 4th December, 2:40pm Three young women in modern- day Japan are all at crossroads in their lives. Mire Yoshizuki is 27, career-oriented and returning from a stint overseas; Sora Nagase is 22, a student under pressure from her parents to become a teacher; and Reika Kawatani, just 20, is a freelancer with a thieving, troublemaker boyfriend. The three are brought together by chance, and united by a love of 'magical girl' anime series Magical Doremi – and when they decide to travel together to places with special significance in the show, they rediscover the importance of things they forgot as they grew into adults. Features a recorded introduction by Dr. Jonathan Clements.
DIE HARD [15], Abbeygate Cinema;
Monday 13th December, 7:30pm On Christmas Eve, tough New York detective John McClane arrives in Los Angeles with the aim of reconciling with his estranged wife, Holly at the Christmas party of her employer, the Nakatomi Corporation. When the party is disrupted by a group of heavily armed criminals McClane evades capture and begins a one- man war against the hostage takers. Is it a Christmas film? You decide!
IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE [U] Abbeygate Cinema;
Monday 20th to Thursday 23rd December
